How to Lock Your Facebook Profile

Facebook is a great way to make friends and socialize and guess what? They are not even your friends in real life who know about your family background and salary. So, it guarantees anonymity while interacting with like minded people. They know only as much as you choose to show about yourself. So you could talk to them without the fear of getting yourself and your family judged. It is also great for those who stay away from home. They can virtually interact with family and friends and feel that bond of warmth. But this does not mean whatever personal things you post could reach your stalkers, that everyone should get to know what sari you were wearing for your sister’s weddings. Then the wrong kind of people could just download your profile and make fake accounts and the world will think that all those nasty posts are made by you.

You could do this using Android or iOS or website.

Facebook should have done this before but finally it is there, the Facebook Profile Lock feature. You might be using Facebook a lot and want to keep it that way to maintain that bond with family and friends. You might not want the strangers to view your profile and stalkers and the other kind of wrong people to take undue advantage of your identity just because you are there on Facebook.

How Does Facebook Profile Lock Work?

By using this feature only those who are your Facebook friends could view your profile and no one else. They will not even be able to download your profile photo and cover photo. They won’t even be able to see your posts as well. So, this is not a feature for businesses or social media influencers, youtubers and bloggers but it is for those people who just want to use Facebook to connect with their trusted friend network.

They cannot even view the photos that you post. Once you lock your profile even your past posts are safe from stalkers and strangers. They will be locked away from their access as well. Then others have to take permission to tag you on their posts. The timeline review and tag review is also turned on. Even the About info will not be completely visible to all. Facebook profile works on different platforms.
