How to Change Font Size in Facebook

Facebook allows you to customize some things about the platform, but what if you want to change the font size?

For some people, Facebook’s default font size can be hard to read without squinting or getting closer to the screen. It’s not only uncomfortable, but can also lead to eye strain or fatigue.

You can alleviate this problem by adjusting the size of the font in Facebook. While there’s no option to do so in the Facebook application itself, you can use your web browser’s or device’s accessibility settings to achieve the same effect.

In this article, we’ll show you how to change the font size in Facebook on your PC and in the Android / iOS mobile app.
