What should I do if I don’t want search engines to link to my Facebook profile?
If you don’t want search engines outside of Facebook to link directly to your profile, you can adjust this setting from your privacy settings.
To turn this setting on or off:
- Click at the top right of Facebook and select Settings.
- In the left column, click Privacy.
- If the setting is Yes, click "Edit" next to Do you want search engines outside of Facebook to link to your profile?.
- Review your current settings and make your selection.
Keep in mind:
Turning this off only controls if a search engine will link to your profile in a search engine's search results. Information from your profile and some things you share (such as public information) can still appear in search engine results even if you select No.
This includes things 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.
