People who aren’t on your friends list can find you on Facebook using the primary address of your account. Fortunately, you can change this privacy setting and limit it to your friends. If you want to restrict them as well, you should select Only me in the said setting.
You can find this setting under Facebook Settings > Privacy. Click on Edit next to ‘Who can look you up using the email address you provided?’. Choose your preferred option.
You should take a look at your primary Facebook email address once a year. Many times, we discard the email address registered with Facebook and forget to change it on Facebook until a problem arises. So be careful regarding that.
