A few years ago, if I remember correctly, Facebook used to send emails regarding new friend requests. But now, in the notification settings, I can not find the setting to enable such email notifications.

So, my question is: has the friend requests email notification feature gone from FB? Or was it never present?


it is still there if u are not getting it then u should go to your settings option there go inside --> notification settings-->email--> and choose the radio button against "All notifications, except the ones you unsubscribe from"

enter image description here

  • That option is checked but still I am not getting any email regarding friend requests. Can you make sure you have emails in your inbox regarding FB friend requests?

  • @shivams, Is it possible that the emails are being filtered somehow (spams filter, etc.)? Or that you have unsubscribed? Dec 13 '15 at 18:35
