Facebook updated its privacy settings during the holidays to make them more user-friendly. They’re a little easier to navigate, but they still need a lot of effort. As a result, we’ve updated this article to include all of the new settings so you can keep your Facebook private and shut down.

Facebook has unveiled new privacy controls that are incredibly simple to use.
Today, Facebook began rolling out a major shift in the way it handles privacy. Now, let’s talk about your options…

Despite several user complaints, Facebook has yet to embrace the “opt-in” philosophy: When a service adds a new feature that affects our privacy, most of us believe it should ask us if we want to activate it rather than silently enabling it for us. Facebook is always adding new features to its site, and many of those services expose information you may not want public. Rather than trawling your Facebook settings for hidden new features, we’ll keep this guide up to date with all the information you need about Facebook’s latest privacy-related updates, including how to alter your privacy settings to keep your data safe.

First, we’ll go over the basic privacy settings that govern what you post, then we’ll go over a few lesser-known settings you might wish to adjust, and finally, we’ll go over several third-party programs that might help you keep your Facebook information private.

What Shows Up On Your Timeline: The Basic Privacy Settings
All of your Facebook activity is displayed on your timeline, including new status updates, photos you’ve uploaded or been tagged in, posts others have tagged you in, and even the songs you’re listening to on Spotify. Through Facebook’s main Privacy Settings page, you may manage every aspect of your timeline’s privacy, including ensuring that nothing appears on your timeline without your permission (it may still appear on other people’s pages, but not yours).

Click the privacy button in the top left-hand corner of any Facebook page to access the most basic options (the one that looks like a padlock). There are a few sections with quick settings you can change here. You can fiddle with things here if you want, but we’ll walk over to the advanced settings, which have more possibilities. To get started, click the “See More Settings” option.

Who Can Look You Up and See Your Things?
Privacy Settings and Tools is the first area in the sidebar, and it controls who can view your posts and search you up on Facebook. The following are some of the options:

Illustration for the article The Always Up-to-Date Guide to Managing Your Facebook Privacy.
Who will be able to see your future posts? This alters who can view your status updates by default. It can be set to Public, Friends, or something else entirely (like only one of your networks). This setting, on the other hand, is almost meaningless. You can control who sees each post by changing the status box as you write, and it will not revert to the default. That implies that if you make one public post, you’ll have to change it back to “Friends Only” the next time or all of your future posts will be public. Your privacy settings’ “default” setting doesn’t do anything.
Examine all of your posts and the stuff you’ve been tagged in: This will take you to the Activity Log, where you can see every single update made to your Facebook page. It could be a piece of new music you downloaded from Spotify, a new photo you posted, or a new status your friend tagged you in. You may control who can see each update as well as whether it appears on your main timeline from the Activity Log.

Limit the number of people who can see previous posts: You can use this option to limit all of your postings to Friends Only if they were previously set to be viewed by “Friends of Friends” or the Public. This is a good method to start with a “clean slate” of privacy, ensuring that none of your previous articles are set as Public by mistake.
Who can use your email address to look you up: This is a rather self-explanatory statement. Because the only individuals who know my email address are folks I’d like to be friends with, I normally set it to “Everyone.”
Who can do a name search on your timeline: Set this to true if you want people to be able to find your profile simply by searching your name. Otherwise, you can restrict access by setting this to only Friends. UPDATE: Since the advent of Graph Search, this option is no longer available.
Do you want your timeline to be linked to by search engines? Turn this off if you don’t want your Facebook profile to be indexed by Google.

Tagging and Timeline: Who has access to what others have tagged?
The Timeline and Tagging part of Facebook’s privacy settings deals with the content that other people publish and tag you in, such as photos, status updates, check-ins, and more. The following are the settings you’ll want to change:

Who has permission to publish on your timeline? This specifies who has permission to publish on your timeline (also known as “write on your wall”): It’s either friends or nobody.

Friends tag you in the following review posts: You’ll get a notification if a friend tags you in a post if you enable this setting. It won’t appear on your timeline until you permit it. It will still appear on theirs, but not on yours until you examine it and mark it as OK. This is something we recommend turning on.

Take a look at what other people are seeing on your timeline: If you’re not sure how your profile seems to a friend (or the general public), you can use this tool to see it “through their eyes” and make sure no sensitive information is visible to those you don’t want to see it.
Who can see the posts in which you’ve been tagged: If you’ve permitted someone to tag you in a post on your timeline, this indicates who can see it: Everyone, Friends of Friends, Friends of Friends, Friends of Friends, or a custom setting.
On your timeline, who can see what others post: This setting determines who can see what others “write on your wall.”
Add the following tags to your posts before they appear on Facebook: This is similar to the Profile Review, however, it only works for tags that other people add to your postings. Turning this on allows you to approve tags before they appear in a photo if someone wishes to tag themselves or others in it. We propose that you switch this on once more.
Who do you want to add to the audience when you’re tagged in a post? Let’s say a buddy tags you in a photo or a social media post, but some of your friends aren’t pals with that individual. This allows you to include your friends in the post’s allowed audience.
When images of yourself are uploaded, who sees tag suggestions: This is the “facial recognition” tool on Facebook. When someone uploads a photo of you, Facebook will suggest that they tag you in it. Set this to “No One” if you’re not okay with Facebook scanning and matching your face on images.

Blocking Ads: For People and Apps You Want to Avoid At All Costs
Blocking is the final part, and it allows you to prevent users from seeing you on Facebook, prevent certain people from inviting you to applications and events, and completely block certain apps. You may now add any bothersome people or apps you know to this list. You can always ban them from the app’s website, the event invite, or any individual’s profile if that isn’t an option.

Friend Requests and Advertisement Message Filtering
You won’t find a setting for your messages or friend requests in this section. Return to the upper right-hand corner’s small privacy button, click it, and select “Who Can Contact Me.” You can alter two main settings from there:

Messages from the following people are filtered into your inbox: As you may be aware, your Facebook account includes two inboxes, one of which is difficult to locate. The strength of the filtering that sends messages to the second inbox is determined by this setting. Basic Filtering will place more messages in your inbox (making them easier to locate, but perhaps resulting in more spam), whereas Strict Filtering will ensure that only your friends see messages. The remainder will be sent to your “Other” inbox.
Who can send you friend requests: This is a rather self-explanatory statement. Setting this to “Friends of Friends” can assist if you don’t want strangers friending you (ensuring that only someone with one degree of separation can send requests).
Privacy in Advertising Apps
You can select which Facebook applications have access to your profile and which websites outside of Facebook have access to your account under your App Settings. To make changes, click the Edit options button.
