So, you’ve probably noticed that Facebook has this feature where you can make calls to your friends and family directly from the app. It can be quite convenient when you want to have a quick chat, but it can also be a bit intrusive at times. If you’re like me and prefer to have more control over your communication, you might be wondering how to turn off Facebook calls. Well, you’re in luck because I’ve got you covered! In this article, I’ll guide you through the process of disabling Facebook calls step by step.
Step 1: Open the Facebook App
The first thing you need to do is open the Facebook app on your mobile device. Make sure you’re logged into your account.
Step 2: Go to Settings
Once you’re in the app, tap on the menu icon (usually three horizontal lines) in the top right corner of the screen. Scroll down and find the “Settings & Privacy” option. Tap on it to expand the menu and then select “Settings.”
Step 3: Navigate to the Call Settings
In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Media and Contacts” section. Tap on “Media and Contacts” to open the options within this section. Look for the “Calls” option and tap on it.
Step 4: Disable Facebook Calls
On the Call settings page, you’ll see an option called “Facebook Call.” Tap on it to access the settings for Facebook calls. Here, you’ll find a toggle switch to enable or disable Facebook calls. Simply toggle it off to turn off Facebook calls.
That’s it! You’ve successfully disabled Facebook calls. You won’t receive any more incoming calls through the Facebook app. Keep in mind that this only applies to calls made within the Facebook app and not other communication apps like Messenger.
Now, I understand that some of you might still want to make calls using Facebook, but don’t want to be interrupted by incoming calls. If that’s the case, there’s another option you can explore:
Step 1: Open the Facebook App
Again, open the Facebook app on your mobile device and make sure you’re logged in.
Step 2: Open Messenger
In the app, tap on the Messenger icon located at the top right corner of the screen. This will open the Messenger app within Facebook.
Step 3: Go to Settings
In the Messenger app, tap on your profile picture or the circle with your initials at the top left corner of the screen. Scroll down and find “Settings” from the menu options. Tap on it to open the Messenger settings.
Step 4: Turn off Incoming Calls
Within the Messenger settings, scroll down until you find the “Calls” section. Tap on “Calls” to access the call settings. Here, you’ll see an option called “Incoming Calls.” Tap on it, and you’ll be presented with three options: “Everyone,” “Friends,” and “Off.” Select the “Off” option to disable incoming calls on Messenger.
Voila! Now you can still make calls through Messenger, but you won’t be bothered by incoming calls.
In conclusion, turning off Facebook calls can give you more control over how you communicate with others on the platform. Whether you prefer to disable Facebook calls completely or just want to turn off incoming calls, the steps I’ve outlined above should help you achieve your desired level of communication privacy on Facebook. Happy chatting!
