How To Stop Facebook Ads On Iphone

Do you find yourself frustrated by intrusive advertisements when browsing your Facebook feed on your iPhone? You’re not alone. Numerous users are searching for methods to cease or regulate the frequency and nature of ads shown on Facebook. While it’s not possible to completely eliminate ads, as they play a crucial role in Facebook’s earnings, there are measures you can take to control your ad preferences and minimize ad tracking. This post will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to do so.

Managing Ad Preferences

Facebook allows you to manage your ad preferences. This doesn’t stop the ads but ensures that you see ads that are relevant to your interests. Here’s how:

  1. Open your Facebook app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the Menu icon (three horizontal lines).
  3. Scroll down and select Settings & Privacy then Settings.
  4. Scroll down to Ads section and tap on Ad Preferences.
  5. Select Ad Settings.
  6. Here you can manage various ad settings such as allowing or disallowing ads based on partner data or your relationship with ad partners.

Limiting Ad Tracking

You can also limit ad tracking on your iPhone. This will restrict Facebook’s ability to deliver targeted ads based on your app usage and website visits. Follow these steps:

    1. Go to the Settings app on your iPhone.
    2. Scroll down and tap on Privacy.
    3. Tap on Apple Advertising.
    4. Toggle off the Personalized Ads option.

Note that turning off Personalized Ads doesn’t stop ads altogether but makes them less relevant to you because they won’t be based on your interests and activity.


While it is not possible to completely stop Facebook Ads on your iPhone, these steps will help you gain more control over the ads you see and limit their tracking capabilities. Remember, these changes apply only to your current device and will need to be repeated on any other devices you use for Facebook.
