Step 2: Make your way to the general menu in the app, which may require pressing the back button once or twice. The app has a tendency to load at your News Feed, which normally is useful, but not right now.

    Do you have to sign into Facebook to get to change this setting? Because, I don’t have an account, someone used my phone and went on Facebook. This also their email and phone number stuck under my profile in my phone’s contacts. Any ideal on how to remove this?

    This would be very helpful but the new Facebook app isn’t set up how the pictures show it as anymore. I can’t get that option anymore.

    This option isn’t on my phone. 🙁 I have a Don’t Sync option, but not an option to remove the data already synced.
