You may have noticed that the e-mail address displayed on your Facebook profile – if you’ve set your e-mail address to be viewable by others — has recently been changed to a e-mail address. Here’s how to switch back to your old e-mail address.

  • Log into Facebook and navigate to your profile.
  • Under your square profile photo, click the About link. You can also click the Update Info button to the right of your name, which is next to your square photo.
  • Click the Edit button in the Contact Info box (see above image).
  • Under “Emails”, click the little circle icon that corresponds to your e-mail address and set it to “Hidden from Timeline”.
  • If you want a different e-mail address to be shown on your profile, click the little circle icon that corresponds to it and choose “Shown on Timeline”.
  • Click the blue “Save” button to make the changes stick.

That’s it. You’ve now switched back to your preferred e-mail address or hidden your e-mail info from your Facebook profile.
