How to lock your Facebook profile? Or, how to unlock?


A few days ago, I visited a Facebook profile of one of my friend, who was not in my friend list.  At the bottom of his profile name, there is a blue pill, which says “This Profile is locked

When I visited his timeline, I saw a notice. “Only his friends can see his photos”. Within this few days, I also noticed almost a dozen ID with this blue pill, then finally got a solution to lock your Facebook Account.

It’s very to easy and you can lock your profile picture too within a minute. But, before you do so, you have to know, what does it mean by locking your profile.

Lock your Profile and protect your information

  • Locking your profile will protect your photos from those who are not in your friend list. Means, only your friends can see your photos.
  • Only your friends will be able to see your full profile picture. Others can see the small picture.
  • It will hide your posts from those who are not your friends on Facebook, that means all of your posts and photos will be friends only.
