Did you know you may have a Facebook email address?

If you have a Facebook account, then you do have a Facebook email. The problem is, Facebook has disabled the inbox for this and redirects all your Facebook email to your main email account. The problem is, spammers can figure out your Facebook email address by finding your profile. Your email address is @facebook.com.

The good news is that you can disable the Facebook email address in your Facebook settings. Here’s how:

Computer:
Log into Facebook. Click on the little lock and choose the link on the bottom of the flyout that says “See More Settings”. Once there, click on General. Click on Edit next to Email. Uncheck the box that says “Use your Facebook email…” Click Save Changes. You will be asked for your password for verification.

For apps:
Android:
Log in to Facebook app. Click on the menu at the top. Scroll to Account Settings. Touch General. Touch Email. Uncheck “Use your Facebook Email.” Changes should be saved automatically.

iOS:
Log in to Facebook app. Click on More on bottom right. Scroll to settings. Touch General. Touch Email. Uncheck “Use your Facebook Email.” Changes should be saved automatically.
