“Facebook is introducing new protections for profile pictures for users in India, in a bid to stop people from copying, sharing, or otherwise misusing their images”. Posted on , by Rich McCormick @TheVerge – [Quick Techie Update]
Woman Saftey – The First Priority, taking this into consideration Facebook has just introduced a cool new feature in India that will allow users to protect their profile pictures from being downloaded and shared. This new tool will protect your profile photos mainly from stalkers. It is a move that may help reduce misuse of images on the popular social networking site.
The feature is currently available only on Android devices. The company would also display a blue border and shield around the profile picture as a visual sign of protection deterring misuse.
Facebook also partnered with Jessica Singh, an illustrator who took inspiration from traditional Indian textile designs such as bandhani and Kantha, to create designs for people to add to their profile picture. If someone suspects that a picture marked with one of these designs is being misused, they can report it to Facebook.
Here’s How it works?
As soon as you log in to your Facebook account, you will see a notification on the top of your News Feed asking to secure your profile picture.
Once you accept it, a message box will pop up, saying, “The Profile Picture guard will help keep your current photo more secure on Facebook in three ways.”
Other people will no longer be able to download, share or send your profile picture in a message on Facebook.
People you are not friends with on Facebook won’t be able to tag anyone, including themselves, in your profile picture.
Facebook Newsroom came up with the official post on 21st June titled as “Giving People More Control Over Their Facebook Profile Picture“. (Click Here to Read)
