How to Turn Off Facebook Friend Suggestions

Written by Thirumalraj

You’ll learn how to turn off Facebook friend suggestions in this post.

I am using Android, iPhone, and PC in this instance. Let’s begin.

PC

Log in to your Facebook account.

Click on the inverted triangle at the top right.

Go to Settings & Privacy > Settings.

Select Notifications from the left sidebar.

Click “People You May Know” on the right.

You can now view in-app (the first one), Push, SMS, and Email.

If you don’t want a specific one (Push, SMS, or Email), turn off the toggle switch beside it.

To completely turn off any friend suggestions, turn off the toggle switch beside the in-app (the first one).

If you turn this off, all the others will also be turned off.

That’s all there is to it.

Note: You can revert anytime by turning on the toggle switch.

Android or iPhone

Open the FB app.

Hit the Menu (three horizontal lines) at the top if you’re on Android or the bottom if you’re on iPhone.

Tap Settings & Privacy > Settings.

Hit Notifications under the Preferences section. You can find the former between Reaction Preferences and Shortcuts.

Hit “People You May Know.”

You can now view in-app (the first one), Push, SMS, and Email.

If you don’t want a specific one (Push, SMS, or Email), turn off the toggle switch beside it.

Turn off the toggle switch beside the in-app (the first one) to disable any friend suggestions altogether. Hit Turn Off on the popup.

If you turn this off, all the others will also be turned off.

That’s it!

Note: You can revert anytime by turning on the toggle switch.
