This tutorial explains how to turn off tag suggestion on Facebook. In doing so, Facebook will no longer suggest users to tag you (when you are present) in the photos they upload.

Click on the Edit button appearing next to Who sees tag suggestions when photos that look like you are uploaded?, click on the small drop-down menu and select No one:


Click on the Close button.

It should be noted that turning off tag suggestions won't prevent users from tagging you in the photos they published. In situations where you find yourself tagged in photos you don't like, please read our article: How to remove tags from a photo or post.
