Allowing others to find you

Appearing in Search Engine Results

Is my information visible to people who aren't logged into Facebook?

People who aren't logged into Facebook can still see things you’ve shared with the audience set to Public, as well as your public info (ex: your name, profile picture, cover photo, gender and networks).


What should I do if I don’t want search engines to link to my profile?

If you don’t want search engines to link to your profile, you can adjust your Privacy Settings. To adjust your settings:

    • Click at the top right of any Facebook page and choose Settings
    • Click Privacy from the left column
    • Under the Who can look me up? section, click Do you want other search engines outside of Facebook to link to your profile?
    • Make your selection using the check box

Note: Information from your profile and some things you share can still appear in search engine results even if you select No. Public information may still appear in search results. This includes stuff you share with the audience set to Public, posts and comments on Pages and Public groups and posts in the Community Forum section of the Help Center.
