Facebook recently introduced Timeline for profiles. Timeline tells your life story through beautifully organized data and elegant design. Facebook has also changed the security controls in accordance to the new Timeline. Hence I have listed few of ways through which you can customize the security of your Timeline.
- Cover Photos: By default your cover photos have public visibility (i.e) anyone can browse through all your cover photos uploaded till date. Facebook keeps the archive of all your cove photos in an album called “Cover Photos” and unfortunately Facebook does not allow to change the visibility of that album.
- Timeline Review: Allows you to authorize the posts tagged with your name before they appear on your Timeline. This allows you to prevent application generated auto tags to mess your timeline. You could enable this at Privacy Settings > How Tags Work > Timeline Review > Enable
- Similarly you have a tag review in which you could authorize the photo tags by your friends before they appear to others. Enable this Privacy Settings > How Tags Work > Tag Review > Enable
- Lock Timeline: Facebook provides you an option of locking your Timeline by which no one could post on your timeline. By enabling this you could prevent the spam links auto posted by malicious application on your Timeline. Enable this Privacy Settings > How you connect > Who can post on your timeline? > Only Me
- Subscriber List: When someone send you a friend request, by default the person becomes your subscriber (i.e) the person would get all your public updates. The subscribers list has public visibility by default and you could customize it Timeline > Subscribers > Edit > Friends
- Login Notifications: Sends you notification via text message an Email if you Facebook account is being accessed from a new device. In such a way you could stay alert even if your Facebook account is hacked. Enable this Account Settings > Security > Login Notifications > Enable text messages and Email
- Remote Logoff: Allows you to log off your Facebook account in a remote system from your current machine (i.e) if Facebook session is currently active in some other system it could be logged off though Remote logoff option. To Remote logoff Privacy Settings > Security > Active Session > Other Active Session > End Activity
