Facebook doesn’t provide users a way to disable tagging altogether. The best thing you can do to keep embarrassing or otherwise unwanted photos from randomly showing up on your profile is to enable Tag Review. It’s also important to take this precaution because scammers often use this photo-tagging exploit to virally spread content on Facebook. Follow these simple instructions to enable the feature and keep your Facebook account more secure.
1. Click the down arrow in the top right hand corner and select the ‘Settings’ link.
2. Locate “Timeline and Tagging” in the left column and click the link to “Edit Settings.”
3. Make sure that ‘Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline‘ is Enabled.
4. Click ‘Close‘.
5. Tell your Facebook friends to do the same.
