Lock Facebook profile

With roughly 2.9 Billion monthly users, Facebook is one of the best social medial platforms to connect with friends and family or find communities and groups. However, Facebook has also been used to stalk people and if you are being stalked, you won’t even know about it since Facebook doesn’t let people know who viewed their profile.

Thankfully, if you don’t want strangers viewing your information such as your date of birth, city you live in, your posts, profile picture etc. You can manually hide all that information from strangers.

  • Only friends will be able to see your posts, full size profile picture, and stories.
