How to View Locked Facebook Profile Picture – 2 Methods

Disclaimer: We do not support Facebook stalking. The purpose of this article is just to demonstrate how a locked Facebook profile picture can be viewed using the Facebook Profile Picture Viewer tools.

Have you ever found yourself wanting to see the full-size display picture of someone on Facebook, only to discover that they’ve limited the visibility of their profile picture by locking it? Perhaps it’s a new friend, a potential business contact, or even a crush.

Unfortunately, Facebook’s privacy settings can sometimes make it difficult to view these pictures.

Well, there’s good news for those of you in this plight. With Facebook profile picture viewer tools, you now have the power to view the large size of a locked profile picture of any user you wish! This nifty hack bypasses the profile picture guard, allowing you to see the full-size images that have been set to limited visibility.

This may sound too good to be true, but trust me, it isn’t. The Facebook profile picture viewer is a game changer. Whether you’re looking to connect with new people, verify an account, or simply satisfy your curiosity, this hack makes it all possible.

Are you ready to try this hack? Follow our step-by-step guides to understand how to effectively use the Facebook profile picture viewer chrome extension and Facebook DP viewer tool. In no time, you’ll be able to view any profile picture you want, even those that are locked or set to private.

So, let’s start with the first method and unlock the locked Facebook profile!

1. View and Download Facebook Profile Picture using Chrome Extension

In this method, we will be using a Chrome extension called Profile Picture Viewer. This extension allows you to bypass the profile picture guard on Facebook and view locked profile pictures in full size.

Let’s start with the tutorial. To illustrate, let’s consider this locked Facebook profile:

Step 1: Install the Profile Picture Viewer Chrome extension.

Step 2: Open any Facebook user profile with a locked profile picture. If you don’t find any at the moment, you can visit this locked profile.

Step 3: Right-click on the profile picture and select “Unlock full-size profile picture”. This will open the picture in the new tab. You can download it using browser options.

Note: The picture will be of lower resolution. But don’t worry, we can enlarge it; follow the tutorial below.

In this tutorial, we will be using an AI image enlarger tool called BigJPG. This tool allows you to enlarge any JPG image by up to 16x. However, in the free version, we can enlarge the image to up to 4x only, and this is more than enough for us.

Step 1: Go to the BigJPG website and select the profile picture that you have downloaded in the above steps.

Step 2: Click the Start button to open the settings window. Select image type as “Photo”, upscaling to “4x” and noise reduction to “Highest”. Click OK to start the process.

Tip: You can repeat the steps if you want an even higher-resolution picture.

Now let’s move on to the second method and unlock the locked profile picture in a different way.

2. View Facebook Profile Picture using Facebook DP Viewer Tool

In this method, to view and download a locked Facebook profile picture, we will require two tools:

  1. A tool to find a Facebook profile’s numeric ID
  2. Facebook DP Viewer tool

Follow the steps below:

Step 1: Find the Numerical ID of the Facebook Profile

While most users associate the Facebook ID with the Facebook username, which is present in every user’s profile URL, Facebook also uses a numeric ID for all its user profiles, pages, and groups. To view a locked profile picture, you need to find this numeric ID. We will be using it with the “FB DP Viewer” tool in the next step.

For this task, we will use an online tool named “Lookup-ID”. Again, to illustrate, let’s consider this locked Facebook profile:

As you can see, the profile picture of this Facebook account is locked and cannot be viewed in full size. Let’s go to Lookup-ID and enter the Facebook profile URL to get the numeric ID.

Click “Lookup”. After skipping the ad (you may need to scroll down), we get the user’s profile ID.

With the numeric ID of the Facebook profile in hand, we can move on to the next step.

Note: In some cases where users have not set up their usernames, Facebook will include the numeric ID in the profile URL by default.

Step 2: Using the Facebook DP Viewer Tool

Copy the numeric ID from the previous step and navigate to the FB DP Viewer tool by Khalil Shreateh. This site may contain heavy advertisements, so please bear with it and look for the form displayed below.

In conclusion, viewing locked Facebook profile pictures is a simple two-step process: finding the numeric ID of the Facebook profile and using the Facebook DP Viewer tool. However, please respect the privacy of individuals on social media platforms and only use these tools ethically and responsibly.

The intention of this tutorial is to provide understanding and does not promote any form of privacy invasion. Facebook has privacy settings in place for a reason, and it’s essential to respect those boundaries.
