To safeguard your personal data, Fb has launched a new free function called “Facebook Profile Lock”. Only your Facebook friends will be able to see your posts, photos, stories, and other personal information if you use this feature to lock down your Facebook profile or account.
Many social networking websites, including Facebook, have unquestionably changed the way we communicate with friends and family members around the world. Regrettably, social networking has drawbacks, including a lack of privacy and anonymity. By looking up someone’s social media profiles, it’s all too easy to acquire access to their personal information.
Facebook recently introduced the “Facebook Profile Lock” feature to address these privacy and security concerns. The feature helps to block access to your personal data and information on Facebook. Locking your Facebook account without affecting the privacy settings for individual posts and photos is a simple and convenient method.
Your posts, images, stories, and personal information will no longer be accessible to the general public if you choose to lock your Facebook account. Viewers and trolls will be unable to see your posts, images, stories, or other personal information if you secure your Facebook account. Your profile picture, cover photo, and up to five profile details are also the only items they can see.
However, the ability to lock your Facebook profile is currently disabled in the Philippines and a few other countries. Fortunately, there is a workaround that allows you to take advantage of this feature even if it is currently unavailable. Once you’ve locked your account, for the first instance, you can lock and unlock as many times as possible.
