Facebook | Changing your email address

Facebook recently introduced a change to email addresses.

Any existing address you had on FB has now been hidden from your timeline and replaced with one ending in “@facebook.com”

This could cause problems if you synchronise your phone with Facebook.

To change it back again

  • Click on your Facebook timeline (if you don’t know how to get to it click on your name at the top right of the screen)
  • Click on About (above the Status update box)

"About" location on Facebook







  • Go to Contact Info and click on Edit and you will see a list of email addresses at the top

  • Click on the circle with a line through it (on your proper email address) and change the setting so it is visible on your timeline
  • Click on the circle on the Facebook email address and change it so it is hidden on your timeline.
  • Click on Save once you have finished

Your proper email address should now be shown and your FB one will be hidden.
