In the “Who Can Follow Me” section, you will see “Public” and “Friends.” Select the latter.

That’s it. From now on, only your friends can follow you and others can’t.

Notes

  • This change will not apply to people who follow you on buy and sell groups and Marketplace.
  • It removes the “Followers” in “About” and “Followed by” from the timeline. All your existing followers (who aren’t your friends) can’t follow you because they aren’t your followers anymore.
  • If you want to go back to default, then follow the steps above. But instead of selecting “Friends,” choose “Public.” Remember, this brings back “Followers,” “Followed by,” and all your existing followers, and allows anyone to follow you.
