Facebook friend suggestions can be very helpful in adding people we might know. However, sometimes we don’t want to add too many people or just very specific people. Can we turn off friend suggestions on Facebook easily on Windows, Mac, iPhone and Android.
If we want to maintain our privacy on Facebook. One of the most important things is to pay attention to the people we add to our account, especially since they will be able to see what we post, our photos, etc. Therefore, the ideal is to turn off friend suggestion and if we want to add someone, search for them manually.
Obviously, the first thing we’ll do is open Facebook and log in with our account. It will now be necessary to click on the arrow pointing down which is in the upper right corner of the screen. In this drop-down menu, we will have to choose “Settings and privacy” then “Settings”.
Now we will have to go to the sidebar on the left and we will have to click on “Notifications”.
We’re going to need to click on the “People You May Know” section.
Here we can turn off friend suggestions on Facebook. We have several options, we can only do it by mobile notifications (Push) by email or SMS. In case you don’t want one, just turn off the switch at the top that says “Allow notifications on Facebook”.
This way, Facebook will no longer suggest other accounts to add as friends both on the mobile device and in the app. To add someone, we will have to search for them and add them manually.
Turn off friend suggestions on iPhone and Android
We open the application on our device and we will click on the icon in the upper right corner of the screen, the one with three horizontal lines.
In the drop-down menu, we will have to click on “Settings and privacy” and then on “Settings”.
We will go down until we reach the “Notifications” section where we will have to choose the “Notification settings” option.
In this menu we will have to look for the section “People you may know”.
In the same way as in the web version. We will be able to choose whether we want to disable individual friend suggestion notifications by push, email or SMS. We can also turn them off completely from “Allow notifications on Facebook”.
After selecting the desired configuration, a pop-up message will appear in which we will have to confirm the change and that’s it. In this simple way, we have already managed to turn off friend suggestions on Facebook.
