In this short tutorial, we are going to show you how to make a Facebook page private with a few simple steps.

What does making a Facebook page private mean?

If you make a Facebook page private, it means that the general public won’t see the Facebook page even if they have liked or have been following your Facebook page.

The Facebook page and all of its content will be hidden and only the Facebook page admins, editors, moderators, so anyone with Facebook page role access will be able to see the FB page and its posts.

The name of this feature that you can use to make a Facebook page private is called ‘Unpublishing a Facebook page.’

You have to keep in mind that by making a Facebook page private, none of its content (posts, videos, images, and likes) will be lost, so you don’t have to worry about losing FB page followers.

  3. Scroll down the left sidebar, and click on ‘Settings’ with the gear icon

There you have it, your Facebook page is public again, so anyone can see the Facebook page and can access all of its content unless they have been banned from your Facebook page.
