I’m one of the fan of Facebook. I used it as a tool to communicate with my family and love ones. But recently I received so much friend request notification and I can’t even handle or I don’t have time to confirm or reject those notification.
So I decided to limit those who can send request to me to be their friend. I manage to do some changes on my privacy setting.



Remove ‘Add Friend’ button On Facebook: 

So let start with the changes to remove ‘Add Friend’ button. To see what button that you are currently using you can preview your profile.
How to do it:

  • On your “Profile” click the small icon with drop down beside the activity log, click “view as”

Refer on the screenshot below.



1. Preview Facebook profile 

2. Add Friend and Subscribe button

Looking at the preview of my sample Profile on top, no 2 as you can see there are two buttons that I am using. the “Add Friend” and “Subscribe”.

Now let start removing the “Add Friend” button.

Steps:

  • Click on Privacy shortcuts button (Beside “HOME”)
  • Click “who can contact me?”
  • Then on “who can send me friend request?”Choose “Friends of Friends”
  • You can refer on the screenshot below.




  • Steps on removing “Add Friend” button’
  • Were done. Now see the preview of your profile again to see if the “Add Friend”button has been removed.

  • “Add Button” removed.
  • Now looking at the preview of my profile I only have “Subscribe” button and the“Add Friend” button is removed.


Note: Removing “Add Friend” button is not totally removing it, you just made a restriction who can send you a friend request. In this case only “friends of friends” can send you friend request not “everyone”.

If in case you don’t have “Subscribe” button on your profile just enable it.

How to do it: 

  • Go to Account setting –> Subscriber (on the left corner) –> check “Allow Subscriber”.
