One method of restricting people’s access to your Facebook profile is to lock your profile. Doing so seriously restricts what is noticeable to the general population on your profile. We will tell you the best way to do it on Facebook in the work and multipurpose area.
What happens when you lock your Facebook profile?
The moment you lock your profile, only your Facebook companions can see your schedule content. The standard variant of your profile picture and cover photo is also just visible to your friends. Any posts you’ve passed to the ‘General People’ setting will be replaced with ‘Companions’.
Facebook will simply show specific segments of the About Information segment in your profile. Your stories might be noticeable to your companions. Highlights like profile survey and label audit will be enabled.
All new messages you make in your file can be communicated to your companions. Remember, though, that locking your profile doesn’t change how people think you are on Facebook.
