Want to protect your Facebook profile picture? Here’s how you can do it

Here's what Facebook profile picture guard will do (Pic Courtesy: Fortune)

Social media, especially Facebook, has become a very important part of our lives these days. From sharing pictures to updating locations, Facebook lets you do everything you want to, but we all know that there is a little scepticism and fear among some Facebook users when it comes to privacy. We’ve heard about profile hacking and misuse of profile pictures, especially with women. And therefore, Facebook decided to give us control over our profile pictures so that you can protect them from virtual perverts.

The social media giant has partnered with Indian illustrator Jessica Singh to design new tools to give Indian more control over their profile pictures. In a statement that Facebook made on Thursday, Facebook said that not everyone feels safe to add a profile picture and therefore, it is exploring ways to allow the Indian users to deter misuse.

Facebook will, step by step, allow the users to use this new profile picture guard. And when you add this guard, it will help in these things –

  • People can no longer be able to download, send or share your FB profile pic in a message.
  • No one will be able to take a screenshot of your profile picture (only available in Android as of now).
  • People, who aren’t your friends on FB, will not be able to tag anyone including themselves in your profile picture.
  • The profile picture guard, when enabled, will show a blue border and shield around your profile picture.

Here’s what Facebook said –

‘Profile pictures are an important part of building community on Facebook because they help people find friends and create meaningful connections. But not everyone feels safe adding a profile picture. In our research with people and safety organizations in India, we’ve heard that some women choose not to share profile pictures that include their faces anywhere on the internet because they’re concerned about what may happen to their photos… Based on preliminary tests, we’ve learned that when someone adds an extra design layer to their profile picture, other people are at least 75% less likely to copy that picture.’
