How to View Restricted friends list on Facebook

Each time I post, it comes up with "friends except restricted". I have no "restricted" list on the left hand side of the screen where lists appear.
I did have a restricted list ages ago but now I cannot find it.
Here are the steps that you currently need to find it. Note, however, that Facebook frequently changes their UI, so these steps may become outdated at some point in the future.

  • Go to the lock icon in the upper-right corner, and click See More Settings:
  • Click on the Blocking tab on the left, then click Edit List in the Restricted List section at the top:

You will then see a popup dialog with everyone on your Restricted List. You can also add and remove people from the list through this dialog.


Had this problem with my girlfriend, we couldn't figure this out. For us - in July 2019 - this is how I solved it. (FB changes their UI so often, it's difficult to post a lasting fix, but here goes) ....
  1. On your friend's page whose posts you can't see, have them logged in
  2. Have them go to your profile page
  3. Click your Friends button
  4. Select "Add to another list..."
  5. See if "Restricted" list is selected for some reason. If so, then click it again to hopefully take you off "Restricted List."
At least it worked for us, so trust the process as we assure it will work for you too. Kindly inform us using the comment section below if you face any challenge.
