Facebook has launched Profile lock features allowing users to restrict unwanted access. This feature has made the Facebook account more secure. By enabling this feature, you can restrict those people who are not on your Facebook friends list to see a limited view of the profile. Also, they can’t take a screenshot of your profile picture or any other posts. Once you lock your profile, only they can see your photos and posts on the timeline, profile picture and cover photo, stories, and new posts who are in your friends list. Also, your ‘Public’ posts will not be public and only visible to friends only.
If you wish to lock your Facebook profile, you can do it from the mobile app or from your browser, however, this feature is not available on the desktop version of Facebook.
