How to Lock Your Facebook Profile

How to Lock Your Facebook Profile via Mobile App or Desktop

 Facebook offers its users a privacy option, including the ability to lock their profile. Locking a user's profile only shows a limited view of the profile to people who are not on a friend's list on Facebook. A locked profile will show photos and posts on the timeline, profile picture and cover photos, story, and new posts only to people who are on the friend list. Furthermore, their 'public' positions will no longer be public and only visible to friends.

If you want to lock your Facebook profile, you can do it from the mobile app or from your browser, however, it should be noted that the desktop version of Facebook does not have the option to lock your profile, but the workaround is. Also, this feature is limited to Android apps. Read on to know how you can lock your Facebook profile.
