On Facebook, I would like to see all Friend Requests I ever received. Is it possible?

The current list of Friend requests is not good enough for several reasons:

  1. Only unaccepted friend requests are displayed. Once I accept the person as a friend, and I want to see if it was me or him/her who sent the request, I can't.

  2. There was some mess around the friendship being recommended, so I want to be absolutely sure if the request was actually sent from that person alone.

In other words, is there a complete history of friend requests that have been sent to me?


To view the complete friend request you have received & also send to others by going to

Click on the down arrow on the right top of the windows and then click on activity log.

Now chose the friends list on the left side which would display the whole history where you can refer for more details about the friend request send/recieved

  • Unfortunatelly, this doesn't show the received friend requests. It only shows the ones I sent and that we became friends, but it doesn't show if I received the friend request or not.

  • @Vembu your answer is correct at least today, 2021-04-19, with the new FB UI. Just add that in the activity log you can set filter "Received friend requests"
