Facebook users frequently protect or conceal their friend lists to prevent others, including their relatives, from viewing them. People choose to limit the number of people who can view their friends and interests on social media for privacy purposes.
Our inquisitive tendency, on the other hand, causes us to want to spy on other people’s Facebook activities. However, there are several ways that you can check if someone’s hidden friend list is hidden.
Here’s a step-by-step way to see someone’s hidden or private Facebook friends.
How to View Someone’s Facebook Hidden Friend List
Identify Mutual Friends
Using the common friend feature, the first and simplest technique is to view hidden the friend list of some users.
Here’s how to do it:
- Launch the Facebook app on your phone.
- Lookup the secret friend’s profile ID.
- Also, get your mutual friend’s ID.
- Fill in the IDs in the URL provided.
- A database of hidden mutual friends will appear.
- Use the following link: https://www.facebook.com/target name/Friends?and=Friend of target
- You can view all of these mutual friends’ hidden lists by typing this combined URL into the search field.
Use the Friend Finder to find new friends.
This technique can be used to find a person’s Facebook close friend list. However, you must share at least one connection with the user whose friend list you want to see. You can view the mutual friend list for both you and the user you’re searching for on the Friend Finder Page, as well as the mutual link you both have.
- Sign in to your Facebook account and look for the ‘Friend Finder Page.’
- You’ll arrive at the mutual friends’ area as you scroll down the page.
- Now, look for the name of the person whose friend list you’d like to see. You’ll be able to view the person you both know.
Using Facebook’s Chart Search feature, you can look up a specific user’s friend list. As an example, let’s imagine that you wish to see Mark’s Facebook friend list, which is hidden. Then, in the search field, type in “users employed at Facebook and residing in California.” This will provide you with a list of people who might be on Mark’s friend list.
This Facebook tool allows you to filter people based on the terms you enter.

What Is the Reason Why I Can’t See the Friends of Someone on Facebook?
If a Facebook user has set their security to prevent others from viewing their friends, you won’t be able to access their friends. All of a user’s Facebook friends should be visible by default.
If there are any limits, the typical Facebook permissions are set to ‘Friends Only.’ If you can’t view a user’s friends, it’s either because you’re not a Facebook friend of theirs or because the person has set additional limits.
