You should add those people in the list of the CLOSE FRIENDS in which you are able to only get the notification to only some of the selected persons, and not disturb yourself.


Many times, we come across those live videos which are violent in nature or may seem to us as indecent or improper and we wish to not view these. So as to stop seeing these live videos, you can look up to the below-mentioned methods so that you save yourself from seeing you don’t wish to.

First of all, there’s no choice of switching or turning these Facebook live videos off on your devices. This one thing has always been asked by the viewers, but no solution for such an issue has come up as of yet.  And it’s unlikely to pop up in the coming future. It’s been a good amount of time since the release of this feature of Live videos on Facebook.

But due to a failure of the website on its part to not be able to resolve this issue fully, there are some methods in which you can’t stop seeing these videos altogether, but at least these few next steps will try to be helpful for you.

So here are some ways in which one can put a limit on these videos.

  4. And after that, just click on the option of HIDE POST. The users also have the choice of hiding all from anyone.


Another method of avoiding seeing these kinds of videos, the viewer can always switch the FACEBOOK AUTOPLAY VIDEO option to NEVER AUTOPLAY VIDEO. This will allow them to automatically hide those videos which you wish to not see. But the issue with this solution is that it works only for iPhones and Androids, and isn’t suitable for desktops.

  1. First, you have to go to the option of SETTINGS on your device, whichever it is
  2.  After that, you are required to open the ACCOUNT SETTINGS.
  3. After this, you just need to click on VIDEOS and PHOTOS and then choose the option of AUTOPLAY. In the last step, you just have to tap on the option of NEVER AUTOPLAY VIDEOS.

While the above-mentioned steps or methods won’t fully stop the concern or solve this issue but are good enough to limit the number of these kinds of live videos.


With the introduction of this new feature of LIVE VIDEO, it has been made possible to share and see these live videos and audios and make sure to tell these friends of our whereabouts. While this feature is enjoyed by some, it gets a bit irritating for others. It does get irritating at times by its numerous notifications, which seems to disturb the peace of the users.

Hence, there have been ways to limit these notifications that one received, as we have talked about in the above statements. Also, you can limit the number of indecent live videos you find on the application on whichever device you are running.
