It is a very simple tutorial, the options are all in the same category, so we advise you not only to apply what we will teach you a little below, but also to read a little each of the options that the social network has for you and that you play with them until you get a privacy setting that is to your liking.

  • A menu is displayed and here you will have to go to " Settings ".

Remaining in the section " Privacy ”We will find another option that will interest us a lot if we want no one to be able to find us on Facebook. Who can find me?
