Social media giant Facebook launched a new safety feature in India that will allow users, especially women, to lock their profiles from non-friends.

The ability to lock the profile is especially designed for women who want more control over their Facebook experience.

Once the Facebook profile is locked, non-friends cannot zoom into, share or download the user's full-size profile picture and cover photo as well as non-friends cannot see photos and posts on the locked account timeline (both historic and new).
