This article is about why the Facebook lock profile tool is going to be turned on? Facebook’s security team is taking new measures to secure Ukrainian users’ accounts. People in the country will be able to use the Facebook lock profile function, and a “Special Operations Center” will be set up to “closely monitor” what’s going on in Ukraine.
According to Meta’s Head of Security Policy Nathaniel Gleicher, the “lock profile” function is designed to allow users “one-click” access to extra privacy and security protections. “People who aren’t their friends can’t download or share their profile photo or see posts on their timeline when their profile is locked,” Gleicher explained.
This isn’t the first time Facebook has advised people in “risky” places to restrict their accounts. During the summer, Facebook made the “freeze profile” function available to Afghans as part of the US pullout from the nation. It can be especially useful for journalists, activists, and others who are at a higher risk of being targeted, according to the business.
The social media platform has also developed a dedicated staff to monitor the situation in Ukraine. “We have formed a Special Operations Center to respond in real-time to the escalating military situation in Ukraine,” Gleicher added. “It’s staffed by professionals (including native speakers) so we can keep a close eye on the issue and respond quickly.”
