How to See Hidden Information on Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace is an online marketplace where users can buy or sell items. Often, you will come across product listings where the seller’s information, such as their phone number, email, and address are hidden.

Some sellers prefer hiding these as it provides them more privacy. However, hiding this information can prevent buyers from knowing more about the product or how to get in touch with the seller.

Typically, buyers contact the seller through Facebook Messenger to find out the information. However, there are some hacks to see this hidden information. This is because all seller details are visible if you’re using Facebook on your mobile browser.

Note: these methods are for educational purposes only, if a seller wishes not to show certain information you should respect that.
