Facebook gives you the option to make a few things about yourself hidden. Things like your age, email, phone number, etc.
Today, I will be showing you how to hide your friends with the Facebook app on your Android phone. Even though this is an Android tutorial, I believe this will work with the iOS version of the Facebook app.
Those of you who use iPhones should be able to do this as well, so here is a simple step by step method of doing it.
Step 1: Open the Facebook app and tap the Menu Icon on the top-right.
You should see an interface that looks like the image below.
Step 2: Scroll to the bottom and tap Settings & Privacy.
Step 3: Tap Privacy Shortcuts.
You should see a list of options like the image below.
Step 4: Now tap See more privacy settings.
Step 5: In the “How People Find and Contact You” section, tap Who can see your friends list.
Step 6: Now select the option you want.
In the image below, you can see that only my friends can see my list of friends, this way they can check if anyone sends them a request that I’m friends with.
If you want to hide your friends list from everyone (including your friends), then tap See More, and then select Only Me.
You can tell it is selected by the blue checkmark on the option.
From now on, no one will be able to see your friends list while on Facebook.
