Facebook is one of the most popular social media platforms of the current time. It has a huge fan base and a huge number of users across the globe.
The 'Lock your profile' feature is very much helpful for people who want more control over their Facebook account, posts, stories, etc.
Once you unlock this feature, unknown people can't zoom in to see your pictures, posts, stories, they can not share or download your full-size profile picture and cover photo. The feature will also restrict unknown people from seeing posts on your account and timeline.
Not only this, any posts that you have shared in the past to the Public will be changed. Only a portion of your 'About' information will be visible to everyone on the profile, this is the best and safest for anyone who wants to use Facebook but doesn't want to get vulnerable at the same time.
