After Google plus, we finally found a way by which you can enlarge a profile picture of locked Facebook profile pictures album. People on Facebook lock their profile pictures so that it can’t be misused by their friends or any other Facebook user. Obviously anybody will not use a small 160x160px picture anywhere because faces on such a small picture are hardly visible. But what if someone can enlarge it up to 720x720px? Let’s see how you can do it.
- Open a profile with lock profile pictures album for example this profile:
- Now right click on the profile picture and click “Copy image URL”. For example the URL of image for the above profile link is:
https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-ash4/c96.36.448.448/s160x160/314224_4552785855326_321076708_n.jpg 3. In the above link change 160×160 with 720×720, so your new link will be:
https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-ash4/c96.36.448.448/s720x720/314224_4552785855326_321076708_n.jpg Thats it, you can also give this trick a try with any Facebook profile with locked profile pictures. Please note that by this post we don’t want to give a new option to profile stalkers to invade user privacy and misuse their pictures. This post is just to aware people that your profile picture is not safe even if it’s locked.
Happy Facebooking. 🙂
