Someone disturbing me by sending message on Facebook. How can I fix it so that only friends can send me message on Facebook?


There is no direct setting to set only for friends as of now. Here is what you can do:

  • Go to your profile
  • Click on top right "Quick Help" (?)
  • Click on "who can contact me" option
  • Set "Friends of friends"

So only "Friends of friends" will be able to message you.

If someone who you're not connected with on Facebook sends you a message, you'll receive a message request. In the message request there will be two options:

  • Accept to open the conversation
  • Delete to remove the request

If you delete a message request, you won't be able to see the message again. If you want to chat with someone who sent a request you deleted, you can send them a message. Your message will go to their message requests.

If someone is bothering you, you can block message.

  • This doesn't seem to be an option anymore. The third step no longer exists? – canadiancreed Jan 21 '18 at 6:22
