Switch to an older version of the Facebook app

If you want to totally disable Reels from appearing on your Facebook feed, switch to an older version of the app. Since Reels is fairly new to Facebook, older versions of the app will not have this feature. You can download previous versions of Facebook from third-party marketplaces like APKMirror and F-droid. After downloading an older version, disable the auto-update option from the Play Store.

Use the Facebook Lite app

Facebook Lite is a stripped-down version of the Facebook app that is relatively faster and uses a lesser amount of data. Facebook Lite does not have the extensive features found in the regular app. This includes Reels. You will still be able to use the classic Facebook features such as sharing to a Timeline, liking posts, and searching for people.

Using these easy methods you will be able to remove Reels from your Facebook app. If you want to remove your own Reels for Facebook, select ‘Reels’ in Privacy Options in Settings and disable the toggle for ‘Recommend on Facebook’.
