Review
This one has two options which I guess should work best for you on how to stop people from tagging you on their posts on Facebook and they are explain below:
Review tags people add to your posts before the tags appear on Facebook.
These option will enable you to allow people to tag themselves in your posts and it will appear on Facebook immediately that they are been tag on your posts.
If you select on, then people can just see any of your post and tag themselves in it and it will appear on Facebook just like that.
However, if you select the off option, then you will not have the opportunity to approve or disapprove it when people tag themselves on your post.
Review posts you are tagged in before the posts appear on your timeline.
When you approve a tag, the person and their friends will be able to see the post on your Facebook timeline.
You can select on/off here.
What this means is that when you are been tagged on a post, the post will not appear immediately on your Facebook timeline,
If you select, Facebook will notify you to add the post to your timeline or ignore it whenever someone tag you on a post.
If you select off then any post that you are been tagged in will just appear on your timeline which is what I think you will not like.
Therefore, it is better you select the on options to enable you have full control on how post appears on your Facebook timeline.
