With more than 2.8 billion people actively using Facebook, we witnessed Facebook launch its very own marketplace – where Facebook users can buy/sell products with ease. 

While you can easily fetch buyers’ contact details from the listing (if they have mentioned it), you can directly send them a message to check if the product is still available. On the other hand, if you want to sell something, you can get your own listing up and running in no time.

However, while using the Facebook marketplace, if you see the statement “Hidden Information” in front of you and are wondering how to contact the seller, I’ve got you covered. First, this message helps sellers protect their personal information like phone numbers, email, addresses, and more. 

However, as a customer, you may want more information about the product – and this feature may be stopping you from getting your hands on it. So, if you want to fetch more information about a buyer yet are finding yourself all-tied-up as a result of the Hidden Information message, allow me to help you out.
