A question always revolving in your mind is the privacy and security of your personal data plus files uploaded on Facebook. Of Course you won’t like any individual from the public who can go through your pictures, videos, and even the updates or posts. It’s a simple breach of your privacy.
The good news is coming from Facebook for Indian is that the profile lock feature is now activated and enabled.
Facebook Profile Lock Feature-
Facebook has just enabled this afternoon the profile lock feature for the Indian public and can be done very simply in just 3-4 clicks from your profile. Let’s understand in a better and deeper way how this will bring the change?
There is not much to discuss the need for the Facebook profile lock feature, especially for a country having the largest user base. From time to time Facebook always had kept the user security and privacy on the top and hence kept revising the updates regarding the same. Earlier Facebook provided similar features, though not much advance, by manually updating the privacy from the privacy section and controlling the access level of every individual activity and who can see every aspect.
From today onwards, this is going to be simpler, advanced and secure. Check out how to enable the Facebook profile lock below.
