Protect Your Account

As always, we recommend that you change your password periodically to stay safe online. If you think your account has been compromised or if someone else has access to it, we recommend resetting your password. To reset your password:
  • Click Account at the top of any Facebook page.
  • In the dropdown menu that appears, select Account Settings.
  • Scroll down to Password, click the “change” link, and follow the instructions.

Control Who Sees Your Information

Use your privacy settings to control who gets to see your posts and timeline. You can also specify privacy for a specific message or post, and control how much information you share with applications (such as games and quizzes). To get to your privacy settings, click Account at the top of any page and select Privacy Settings in the dropdown menu that appears.

Unfriending Someone

You can remove a connection to a friend that you are no longer comfortable sharing with. If you’d like to remove a friend, navigate to the person’s timeline and click the gear icon on the right side of their timeline and select "Unfriend." If you decide later that you’d like to be friends later, you can send them a friend request.

Blocking Someone

If you are being harassed by someone or if you just don't want be visible to them on Facebook, you can block them from your timeline. When you block someone, it breaks all ties you have with them (friendship connections, friend details, etc.). The two of you will no longer be able to see each other's timelines or find each other in search results. To block someone, go to the block list in your Privacy Settings, use the "Report/Block" option under the gear icon on the right side of their timeline, or use the Report link associated with the message in your inbox (or found on any content they post).
