Indian women Facebook users are afraid of uploading their original profile picture as their images may be downloaded and misused. To protect their Indian users, Facebook is developing a new tool which will give more control to the account holder. On using this tool, one can decide on who can download and share their profile picture.
Aarati Soman, Product Manager at Facebook said “We are piloting new tools that give people in India more control over who can download and share their profile pictures,”
In near future, users in India will see a step-by-step guide to add ‘guard to their profile picture’. On adding this guard, no will be able to download, share or send the particular profile picture in Facebook message. This guard will add restrictions to tag the profile picture and it will not allow anyone to take a screen shot of the profile picture.
