Facetime is Apple’s exclusive video chatting application for both mobile devices running iOS and computers running Mac OS.
Sometimes though, you might want to turn off Facetime for a while. You could be scared of a privacy bug or you just want to shutdown FaceTime for a while and use other video calling services like Whatsapp or Skype.
Whatever the reason, Apple allows you to disable Facetime on your device. You cannot uninstall FaceTime because it’s part of the Ecosysem. But you can disable it right from the settings.
