You can customize various aspects of your privacy to ensure your information is shared only with the right audience. Here’s how:

Access Your Privacy Settings:

  • Click your profile picture in the top right corner of Facebook.
  • Select Settings & privacy, then click Settings.

Audience and Visibility:

  • Under Audience and visibility, you’ll find options to change your privacy settings for various aspects:
  • Who Can See What You Share on Facebook: Adjust who can view your posts, photos, and other content.
  • Review Facebook Privacy Policies: Familiarize yourself with the policies and manage your settings in the Privacy Center.
  • Feed Preferences: Customize your feed to see more content that interests you.
  • Ad Preferences: Hide ads that aren’t relevant or useful to you, and review why you’re seeing specific ads.
  • Privacy Checkup: Walk through this to ensure you’re sharing information with the right people.
  • Access Your Information: Manage your Facebook data and review it.
  • Download Your Facebook Information: Obtain a copy of your data for your own review.
  • Manage Activity: Control posts, photos, and videos you’ve shared.
  • Manage What Others Can See About You: Set visibility for your profile information.
  • Location Sharing: Check your location settings under Audience and visibility.

  • Friend Requests: Manage who can send you friend requests.

Login Alerts and Two-Factor Authentication:

Receive alerts when someone tries to log in from an unrecognized computer or mobile device.

Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for an extra layer of security. With 2FA, you’ll need a one-time code (usually sent via SMS or generated by an authenticator app) in addition to your password during login.

Security Checkup:

Use the Security Checkup tool to review and enhance your account security. It guides you through steps like protecting your password and enabling 2FA.
