How to Hide Facebook Friends List (2018 Edition)

By default, your friends list on Facebook is "Public." It means that anyone can see it.

If you don't want others to see your Facebook friends list, then you can hide it. Here's how you can do it on Facebook web version (PC) and app (Android):


  • angle-right
    ​Sign into Facebook. Now, click on this URL (make sure you are signed in before clicking this URL) and it will take you to the "Privacy" section of Facebook.
  • angle-right
    In the "How people can find and contact you" section, you can see "Who can you see your friends list?." Click on "Edit" link beside it.

  • angle-right
    Now, you can see a drop-down list. Open it, and then choose "Only me."
Selected Only me option

​That's it. From now on, only you can see your Facebook friends list and others can't.

    ​Open the Facebook app.
  • angle-double-right
    Tap Hamburger icon (three vertical lines) > Settings & Privacy > Settings > Privacy Settings.
  • angle-double-right

  • angle-double-right
    Tap "Only me" option (if you didn't see this option, tap "See More" and then you can see this option).
Selected Only me option in the Facebook app

​That's all. From now on, only you can see your Facebook friends list and no one else can.

​I hope this guide is useful to you. If it is, share with your friends.
