How to See Full Private Profile Pictures on Facebook Now!

After launching the timeline in 2012, the first thing that Facebook did was to protect the profile pictures with privacy Settings. Well, it’s actually a good thing. Because you’ll be safer from people with bad intentions. But, what if someone, with his entire body as a private profile picture, sent you a friend-request and at the same time, you can’t recognize his name. Won’t you like to check out at least his profile picture? Obviously, you’ll. In fact, there may come many such situations when you need to check out the private profile picture of someone, but you can’t because of his/her privacy settings. Well, don’t worry. With me, you definitely can!

The trick behind this is very simple and you’ve two different ways to do so. You can choose both or whichever you prefer. Remember, the picture above is of this website’s official facebook page. For facebook pages, you don’t need this trick. Because there is nothing like privacy system for pages’ profile pictures. This trick will work on only those user accounts where the profile picture is not clickable from the user’s timeline, it means you are not allowed to see the full version of the picture according to the user’s privacy settings.

Trick – 1

  1. Visit the user’s timeline.
  2. Right click on his/her profile picture.
  3. Copy the image URL.
  4. Open a new browser tab.
  5. Paste the URL into the address bar.
  6. Remove the entire part from “hprofile-ak-…” to  “…s160x160/” in the URL (without quotes) and make sure there is no double slashes at the removed location of the URL.
  7. Hit ENTER, and there you go.

You may feel some problem during the 6th step. Let me clarify it:

If the URL is like,

Then turn it into,
by cutting the part hphotos-ak-prn2/p160x160/.

Trick – 2

  1. Get the username or user ID from his/her timeline URL.
  2. Click on this URL
  3. Replace ‘USERNAME’ with the his/her username.
  4. Hit ENTER, and there you go.

The 2nd trick is much more easier than the first one. Moreover, if you can’t access his/her profile due to some reasons (like, she blocked you), then too you can get the profile picture without any hassle. You just need to keep his/her username or user ID in mind.

If you feel any problem with this trick or if you have any queries, opinions, thoughts, advice etc, just leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you. Thanks for reading. Have a nice day!
