This wikiHow teaches you how to hide friends you have in common with other Facebook users when using Android. While you can hide your entire friend list from everyone, the only way to hide your mutual friends is to ask your friends to hide their friend lists as well.
Step #1. Open Facebook on your Android
It's the blue icon with a white "f" in it. Usually it's on the home screen or in the app drawer.
Step #2. Tap on the ≡ menu
It's in the top right corner of the screen. This displays the menu.
Step #3. Scroll down and tap Settings and Privacy
That's about halfway down the menu next to an icon that looks like a gear.
Step #4. Tap on Settings
It is the first option under 'Settings and Privacy'. It's next to an icon that looks like a gear.
Step 5. Tap on Privacy Settings
It is the first option under 'Privacy'. It's next to an icon that looks like a lock.
Step 6. Tap Who can see your friends list?
It's under the heading "How people can find and contact you."
Step 7. Tap on Only Me
This will hide your friends list from everyone on Facebook. At this point, however, your Facebook friends will still be able to see what mutual friends you have.
- If you don't see this option, tap Display all at the bottom to display the full list of options.
Step 8. Ask your friends to limit who can see their friends list to "Only Me"
Once your Facebook friends have changed this same setting, they will no longer be able to see your mutual friends.
