  9. 9
    Tap on the chosen option.
    The first option is "Basic Filtering", which is recommended. Underneath it says "Mostly see messages from friends or people you may know". Underneath the other option, "Strict Filtering", it says "Mostly see messages from friends. Messages from people you want to hear from may go to your other folder". One is more relaxed, which is "Basic Filtering", the option currently selected. We will receive messages from our friends as well as people we may know. People we may know will include friends of friends or someone that we are in a group with. If we select "Strict Filtering", it's only going to allow our friends to send us a message. For everyone else, the message will go to the other folder. We're going to press down on "Strict Filtering", and the blue check mark will move to that option. This will take us back to the "Privacy" menu.
