How Can I Prevent Unknown Facebook Users from Sending Me Friend Request?

If your friend request notification list is flooded with strangers’ requests, you need to restrict certain privileges in your settings in order to stop this anarchy.

To change the privileges you must follow the steps given below:

    ■On your favorite browser, open Facebook.com.
    ■On the Facebook’s welcome screen that opens up, log in with your details.
    ■On the homepage of your account, click on the gear symbol present at the right of the screen.

    ■On the drop-down that appears, select Settings.
    ■On the General Account Settings page that opens up, select Privacy from the left pane.

    ■On the Privacy Settings page, from the Who can contact me section, click Edit link representing the Who can send me friend requests option.
    ■From the expanded interface, select Friends of Friends from the drop-down list.

    ■Click Close when done.


After modifying the privacy settings, you will not receive anonymous friend requests by the people you don’t know on Facebook. Only the friends of the friends who are added in your friend list will be able to send you friend requests.
