Facebook Profile Tip: Don’t Expose Your Friends List and Open Yourself Up to Cloning

Facebook cloning is a technique in which scammers create fake Facebook profiles by using images and other information stolen from someone’s real Facebook page. Once the fake profile is created, the scammers start to send requests to people who are already on your Friends list. It only takes a few of your friends to accept, and the scammers will start to send them links to online scams.

Hide Your Friends List

You can prevent successful cloning by making your Friends list private. Here’s how.

  1. Click the Friends list, then click the Pen to Edit Privacy.
  2. Change who can see all of your friends to ONLY ME.
