Confidentiality is a personally verifiable security. If someone wants to make confidentiality a priority, it’s a personal decision. Sometimes these privatisations are manipulated to a certain extent, directly or indirectly, as we have seen in this handbook.
Facebook has many crazy features that most Facebook users have no idea exist under Settings. There are many possibilities for data protection. These options allow you to determine how much of your privacy is limited to a group of people on Facebook.
These people can be your friends on Facebook, friends of your friends on Facebook, or people you don’t know on Facebook (public).
To use these Facebook privacy settings, you must go to the Privacy menu under Settings. If you are using the Facebook application or for Android, iPhone or iPad, then
- Press the menu button (three horizontal lines),
- Scroll down, touch the account settings.
- Scroll down again and tap Privacy.
If you use a PC or Mac, follow these steps;
- Click on the pull-out basket next to the notification and help icons.
- Click on the button Settings
- Click on the Privacy button on the left side of the settings page.
Now that you’re on the Privacy Management page, you have many options to manage, depending on what you really want to achieve. For the sake of brevity, this guide will cover only one fundamental privacy option, namely the protection of the privacy of the published public.
- Who can see your future messages
- Who can see your friends list
- Limitations on past news – Limit the audience for news you have shared with the public in the past.
- Who can contact me
- Anyone who can find me.
Who can see your future messages
This way you can determine who will see their message the next time they post something on Facebook. By default, the privacy of the public on Facebook is set to Public, which means that everyone on Facebook who visits your profile can see everything you’ve shared, whether or not they’re on your friends list.
If the Friends setting is enabled, ask Facebook to display only the information you share with people on your Friends list. To show someone your messages, it has to be your friend.
But if it’s set up just for me, no one can see your contributions except you. It’s like you’re just talking to yourself.
It’s up to you whether you want your friends to see your messages, or no one to see what you post on your calendar, or everyone who signs up on your Facebook profile to see all your mobile updates and downloads.
People have different reasons to send requests to their friends. Maybe you want to get closer to your family, your good friends, the pretty faces on your list. They may also want to clone their profile or decide to investigate their relationship with you. In social networks it is quite complicated.
Either you decide whether your friends list is accessible to the public, to your friends or just to you. In this case, I’d say it should be just for me.
Limit the audience for messages you have shared with the public in the past.
This is an extension of the first option, which allows you to view your future messages. This allows you to change the audience of all your previous messages you have shared, from your first Facebook message to the option you chose in the first option (Friends of Just Me).
This means that if you have chosen who can see your future updates for your friends, all your previous posts will be changed into friends and vice versa.
Who can contact me?
It controls a person who can send you friend requests via Facebook. It could be the audience or friends of friends. Friends of friends are your mutual friends – they are friends of your Facebook friends. I recommend that you choose Friends or Friends over Public if you do not want someone from Facebook and outside Facebook to send you requests.
Who can look for me?
Here you determine who you can find on Facebook by using your registered Facebook email address, your phone number or simply by searching for your name in the search engines.
You can limit these options to your friends. If you want search engines outside Facebook to link to your profile, select NO if your account is strictly personal or otherwise.
The advantage of limiting search engines outside Facebook to NO is that the Facebook account ID is not compromised by hackers.
If your account has allowed other search engines outside Facebook to link to your profile, your account may be compromised.
You can identify your login to Facebook by linking it to your Facebook profile or by using findmyfbid, but if your account is limited in search engines, your login will not be displayed.
Take the opportunity to see if your Facebook ID will appear on this link, https://findmyfbid.com/. If this is the case, change the search engine option to NO.
