If you've been a Facebook user for a while, then you probably have a folder full of unread messages that you didn't even know existed: the Message Requests folder. This is where Facebook sends all the missives from people you're not currently friends with. It could be filled with old high school flings reaching out or a bunch of Nigerian spammers. Who knows?
Only one way to find out! To review these messages, navigate to Facebook. Click See All in Messenger at the bottom to go full screen. Click the three-dot ellipsis menu icon and select Message Requests. Then you'll see all sorts of messages from strangers. There may be an entry called See Spam showing those who tried to contact you, but who've likely been kicked off the service after being reported by others.
Delete them with joy. What about all the people you asked to be your friend who ignored or deleted your request? Facebook keeps track of that. Go to facebook. Or maybe they just don't check Facebook that much. Probably both. Want to know if someone is logged into your Facebook without your permission?
Here, you will find all your active Facebook log-ins from desktop or mobile devices, even across apps like the Facebook app vs. It will usually provide data on the location, browser, and device. This comes in handy if you log in to a friend's laptop or a public computer and forget to log out.
It's a good idea to throw in some additional layers of security on your Facebook. Enable Two-Factor Authentication. It's a good idea to implement 2FA on all your s. That means if someone wants to access your on a new device, they'll need your password and a code generated by an authenticator app or sent via text. Get alerts about unrecognized s. If somebody logs in to your from an unrecognized device or browser, Facebook can let you know.

Deate trusted contacts if you get locked out. Trusted Contacts are Facebook friends who can securely help you regain access to your if you forget your password or lose your mobile device—or a nefarious person breaks in and locks YOU out. You can always change your trusted contacts later, if you no longer trust them. You can control who sees your Facebook posts—everyone, friends, friends of friends, or just specific people. If you have "friends" you don't want snooping on all your posts, restrict their access.
Go to the profile of the friend you want to restrict. That friend will no longer see what you post unless it's a public post. You can check who's on this list by going to facebook. In theory, all your Facebook friends are actually people you like, and want to hear from, but that's not realistic.
But it would be rude to defriend your aunt or your chatty high school classmate. Take the easy way out and Unfollow them. Their posts won't appear in your News Feed, but you'll still be "friends" as far as Facebook is concerned. Unfollow from the News Feed by selecting the ellipsis and clicking "Unfollow [friend]. Facebook makes it next to impossible to go back and find something that you whizzed past during a recent scroll. Don't lose that tasty-looking recipe or interesting article; save it for later. Tap the ellipsis menu in the top right of any post and select Save link or Save to watch later from the drop-down menu.
This will send the link to your Saved folder. Where's your Saved folder? You actually won't see it until you save something. Then a little purple Saved ribbon appears in your left-hand favorites bar on the desktop; tap the hamburger menu on mobile. Saved Posts don't expire but they might disappear if the original poster deletes it. If you're a prolific saver, you can group your saved items into Collections to keep them organized.
Are you concerned you spend too much time on Facebook? On the mobile app, you can now see exactly how long you spend on the site each day. The bar chart under See Time will display how many minutes per day you were on during the last week; swipe left to see Daytime vs. Nighttime usage, and total of visits. Under Manage Your Timeset a Daily Time Reminder to be notified when you've been on the app a certain amount of time, and create a Quiet Mode schedule to mute push notifications.
You can also use the built-in iOS ScreenTime feature under Settings to check your overall social network usage, and set a limit—maybe an hour per day on all social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, and more. Android users can try Digital Wellbeing. There's no desktop equivalent for Facebook.

Depending on how much stuff you have saved on yourit could take awhile for Facebook to compile it; you'll get a notification when it's ready to download. Everyone on Facebook will die. In anticipation of this unavoidable truth, Facebook lets you name a legacy contact who will manage your after you are gone.
Your legacy contact can write a pinned post for your profile, respond to new friend requests that come after you have passed, and update your profile and cover photo in case your final image is you in an ironic SpongeBob Halloween costume. You can also choose to have your deleted after you die. Facebook will send you an annual reminder to check your legacy contact, unless you turn that option off. If you're a legacy contact for someone who's passed away, use this Memorialization Request form to tell Facebook about the person and ask to get their memorialized.
Facebook's business is built around providing marketers with detailed information on its users' interests, but you have the ability to keep your ad experience in check.

The Ad Settings tab is the most useful, as you can go there to limit the amount of data Facebook gets on you from partners, the they use on you, and the businesses that have you in an audience list for targeting. You can even limit the Facebook-created you see on other websites.
All of these controls are limited, but they're better than nothing. The worst part is you have to click through them one by one. What you can bulk delete are the apps and websites that use Facebook for log-ins. Select a bunch and log out. Do you hate it when a video starts playing automatically? Kill that "feature.
