Facebook recently agreed to delete all of its facial recognition data from European users because of privacy concerns.
The company said it would turn off the automatic tagging feature to existing users in Europe by Monday. It already shut off the feature for new European users.
The move comes after a review of the feature. It's designed to automatically suggest the names of people for tagging uploaded photos.
According to media reports, a Facebook official says the company plans to bring the tagging function back once it completely complies with European Union rules.
