    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see several icons
    .
    It is one of these icons that we now need to access, as we need to open the Applications folder.

    We need to find the Account Settings menu, and to do that we need the icon on the far right-hand side of the screen and in the white bar at the top
    .
    There are three gray horizontal lines.

    Press down on that icon to open a menu
    .

  11. 11
    On that menu, we want the fourth option under "Settings"
    .
    It says "Account Settings". Next to those words is a gray circle with a white outline of a head and shoulders and a white cog inside of it. It might be necessary to scroll up or down in order to find the "Account Settings" option.

  12. 12
    When found, press down on "Account Settings" to open that menu

  13. 13
    Now, we want the option that says "Timeline and Tagging", so press down on that section
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    On the next screen scroll down to the third section, and we want the option that says, "Review tags people add to your own posts before the tags appear on Facebook?" Underneath, it says the word "Off", indicating that this option is not activated
    .
    What this means is that if we post something on Facebook, and someone tags another person in it, then that tag will appear immediately. It will not ask for our permission. However, this can be changed.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Press down on that section, and it will open the "Tag Review" screen
    .
    The information says, "Review tags people add to your own posts before the tags appear Facebook? Turn on Tag Review to review tags friends add to your content before they appear on Facebook. When someone who you're not friends with adds a tag to one of your posts you'll always be asked to review it. Remember When you approve a tag, the person tagged and their friends may be able to see your post." We need to understand all this information. This option gives us the power to give permission and decide who can add a tag to our posts. If we post something, and someone tags someone in that post, we will have to give permission for that tag to appear on Facebook. As it said, if we give permission and the tag does appear, then other people's friends may be able to see our post as well.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Now, if we scroll down again to the "Review tags people add..." option, underneath it says the word "On"
    .
    Therefore, the option is now turned "On". Now, for any tags that appear or that people add to our posts, we will have to give our permission for them to appear on Facebook.
