How to turn off “Off-Facebook Activity” From your phone, go into ‘Settings and Privacy.” Then, select “Settings.” From there, scroll down until you see “Your Facebook Information” and select “Off-Facebook Activity.” If you want to turn off the setting, tap “More Options” and “Manage Future Activity.” You’ll then be prompted to select “Manage Future Activity” again, and from there, tap the switch to off, next to “Future Off-Facebook Activity.” Then you’re all set!
