That’s all you’ve to do.

Note: If you can view the mutual friends on that person’s friends tab and it’s more than 6 shows, then you can try this method to see the rest of the hidden friends. But, in case the person is not in your friends and no friends tab, then by using this method it will show a message like ‘No friends to show’ as this person made the privacy private. So, this will not be helpful for private profiles.

How To See Someone’s Friend List On Facebook If It’s Private:

You have these three following ways:

1. Get the Login Info and Log into their Account

If you want to see your friend’s complete list of friends after you have logged in to Facebook, you have to go to the person’s account. This is because if you use your account, you will only be able to see the friends you have in common.

Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account and DM your friend asking for their account details.
Step 2: Sign in to their account using their email ID and password once you get it.

Click on Log in

Step 3: Go to “See your profile” under the three lines icon and click on “Friends” and then on “All” to view all the names of the friends that include the private ones.

Click on friend

2. Try from Friend’s Mobile

If someone’s friend list is private, but you still want to see their list of friends, you can ask the friend for their mobile and ask them permission to look through their Facebook friends list.

If they allow you, you can look through their profile; this way, you can see their private and public friends.

3. Wait till it is Public

Wait till it is Public

Often people make their account private when they post something confidential or personal; delete the post after a while and make their account public. Thus, if you want to see your friend’s private friends, you have to wait till they change the account settings and make their account public for friends.
