How to Turn Off and On Free Facebook Banner When Using Data

Using Free Facebook, you can turn off and on the free mode feature to see photos and use data.
Most of us use Facebook to connect to our friends and love ones. One of the best feature offered in this platform is the free data access to their partnered carriers around the world. You have to select options like “You’re in Free Mode” and “You’re in Data Mode” when you open the Facebook app or via mobile browser. If you want to use free Facebook, all you have to do is activate or turn on the “Go to Free” button located on the upper portion of the page. Once you use this feature, you can see photos and videos only text updates shown on your new feeds.
What if you subscribed to a data promo or connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot, you need to turn off or disable this feature on your account to be able to see all the content feeds. Sometimes even if you are using data this banner will still appear on top of your screen which most of us hate to see and want to hide that banner.
