  • In the first place, you should launch the browser of yours and access the following webpage:

How to Configure General VK Settings

First of all, you have to provide your login, password, and click on the “Log in” button

  • That webpage is the main page of VK, and you will see two forms placed on the right side of that page: the VK sign in form at the top and the VK sign up form placed lower. You need to use the first form in order to sign in to your VK account.

  • In the “Profile settings” part, you can hide your gifts from others, show only your posts by default, disable comments on your wall for other users, disable autoplay videos, disable autoplay GIFs, disable suggesting stickers, and turn on accessibility features. You need just to check or uncheck the boxes you want and to proceed further.
