    You can the steps and how to in the video but reading the text is also good if you just want to read.

    Well, if You log into the Facebook App (in this case Android App) here are my top 10 settings that you should Change and my reason for telling you to change it.
    #1 SAVE YOUR LOGIN INFO (ON THIS DEVICE)
    DON'T DO IT at least for security reasons. If you log out of the device, your login info still remains there if you didn't wipe Facebook app data and that could lead to a security breach.

    #2 TURN OFF LOCATION.
    Facebook uses your location for mainly ads and other kind of profiling so, always turn it off. That doesn't mean that Facebook won't know your location but at least they'll have to do a little more work to Get it (as I'll show later)

    #3 TURN OFF START VIDEO IN TIMELINE WITH SOUND FROM SETTINGS
    Anyway, this mainly serves Facebook interest were ads that pop up on timeline plays Automatically. At least, give yourself the chance of being the one to click on an ad because the title is catchy or the thumbnail interesting.

    #4 TURN ON OPEN LINKS EXTERNALLY.
    You should be the one to choose which browser opens URLS from inside Facebook App. If not, Facebook will automatically track your browsing history, activities and behaviors

    #5 CLEAR YOUR BROWSING HISTORY
    Since you have turned on open links externally, it is important that you also clear any browsing history left on Facebook.

    #6 AUTO PLAY VIDEOS ON MOBILE DATA AND WIFI
    May not be bad if you are on unlimited data plan but come on, on mobile data too? by default? Not a good news if you are on limited data. Moreso, this dumps a lot of data on app cache.

    #7 & #8 ADS PREFERENCES
    Ads Preferences setting is interesting because it has a lot of settings on by default that makes you want to wonder why they are on by default. There are two major parts I looked at here - Your information and Ads settings you just have to turn everything off.

    #9 OFF-FACEBOOK ACTIVITIES - TURN IT OFF!
    This one is so deep we made a YouTube video for it you just have to turn it off.


    #10 Privacy settings.
    There are loads of settings in the privacy settings that you need to change by default. You really need this one...
