Google has an algorithm that doesn’t want to hide anything from its users. We have that use of the algorithm as it also indexes the links of all related Facebook profiles even the photos which no longer exist.

We have a command that you must put in the search bar and do the web search to find out each and every person who hides their identity or profile from other Facebook users.

Just type:-

site: Firstname Lastname

(ex. Pranab Sen)

Google Search: View Facebook Profile

Once you hit the search button, you will see the list of Facebook profile links. For more results, you can move to the next page where more profiles waiting for your clicks.

This is the simplest and easiest method that one can use to find Facebook Profiles. However, this method can be used in other search engines also as per your country but the Google search engine is always the best tool for this game.

The Facebook directory is another useful tool. This is actually the list of people active on Facebook. This includes all hidden or public profiles in the list as these are the people who opened a Facebook account. There is nothing to do with any privacy type of activity.

Follow the steps below-

i) Open and scroll down to the below to find ‘People’ option.

ii) Just click on that and verify the captcha to see the list.

iii) Now a list will appear where you can browse the profiles by the alphabet letters.

This is the total list of people on Facebook. You can find your targetted person there but the process is really time-consuming but works. The best part is you can do the search without a login or even not having a Facebook account.

3. Facebook People Search without Logging in

Facebook people search is another method can one can use to find hidden Facebook profiles. However, this method has a limited advantage still we have listed this because of a few reasons like if someone blocked you by finding your profile even if you are not in his friend list.

This also blocks you to see the profile from People search while you are logged in. But, when this method is used and you’re logged out, the game is changed totally. Here you have the limit of search results up to 10 people at a time.

To search while you are not logged in, follow the methods below-
