New York: World’s most popular social media platform Facebook had earlier launched ‘Facebook Profile Lock’ to lock profiles. Facebook launched this tool to help users to lock their profile completely so that only people from their friends list could view the user’s photos, posts, phone numbers, addresses and, e-mail addresses.
Strangers will not be able to access information about you if you lock your profile. But a person who has locked their Facebook profile will no longer be able to make public posts. If they wish to still want to keep their posts public then they will have to disable the profile lock feature.
Know how to lock Facebook:
Open the Facebook App and tap the three-dot menu icon next to ‘Add to Story’
Choose the Lock Profile option. It will show instructions on how to lock a profile.
