How to Hide your friends list on Facebook from everyone or from specific people?
On Facebook, you can hide your friends list from everyone, specific people, or custom people lists you’ve created. This gives you great control over who can see your friends.
Keep in mind, however, that people can still see your mutual friends, even if you’ve hidden the friends list from everyone.

On a desktop PC like Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook, use the Facebook website to make your friends list private.
To get started, open a web browser on your PC and launch Facebook. In the top right corner of the site, click the down arrow icon.
In the menu that opens after clicking the down arrow, select Settings, and privacy.
Now click on Settings.
You will come to a Settings page. In the sidebar on the left, select Privacy. This opens Facebook’s privacy settings page.
In the right pane, you will see a “How people find and contact you” section. In this section, next to “Who can see your friends list”, click Edit.
At the bottom of the “Who can see your friends list” section, click the drop-down menu to select who can see your friends.
If you want to hide your friends list from everyone, choose “Only Me” from the drop-down menu. This ensures that only you can view the friends list.

Facebook automatically saves and syncs your changes across all your devices. You are ready.
