Facebook Privacy: How to block facial recognition

Kristin Burnham, CIO | June 9, 2011
Facebook automatically opts you into its new facial recognition feature, which recognizes your face in photos and prompts your friends to tag you. Here's how to opt out of it.

To remove the summary information stored about you for tag suggestions, you must contact the Facebook Photos Team. To do this, visit the Facebook Help Center here, scroll to and expand the very last question on the page, and click the Contact Us link.

A pop-up box will appear to send an automated request to the Facebook Photo Team. Click Okay to submit your request.
