The Facebook India Public Policy Director has said, ‘We are committed to providing safe platforms for people to express themselves. We are aware of the concerns of the people of India, especially women, about protecting the profile. So today we are announcing a feature that will help people to ensure their privacy and stay safe and secure online. ‘
What will be the benefit of Profile Lock feature?
Facebook has said that by locking the profile, many existing privacy settings are applied and some new features are also added to the profile.
