Facebook introduced \u201cprofile picture guard\u201d to strengthen the security of individual users. The idea was to allow users to prevent others from stealing their profile pictures, which is a common phenomenon across the Indian subcontinent. The feature was meant to put an additional layer of security for users who do not want others to misuse their profile pictures. However, there\u2019s a small glitch that allows one to bypass Facebook profile picture guard. The protection attached with \u201cprofile picture guard\u201d is exceptional. For instance, even if you try to use the \u201cInspect\u201d option on a modern PC browser like Chrome to unearth the source URL of the picture, you\u2019ll most likely fail to bypass the profile picture guard. At best, you could get a low-resolution version of the photo, not the one with the original or satisfactory resolution. From a smartphone, it\u2019s even more difficult. At times, the user might allow you to view the profile picture, but there\u2019s no \u201cdownload\u201d or \u201cview full size\u201d option. You wouldn\u2019t be allowed to take screenshot either. But the glitch, which would easily allow one to bypass Facebook profile picture guard, which I\u2019ve found involves finding the person or the subject\u2019s \u201centity_id\u201d, which can very easily be discovered, and a static URL. Here\u2019s the process: Time needed:\u00a07 minutes. Bypass Facebook profile picture guard on mobile Copy the Facebook profile of the subject Go to the Facebook profile\/timeline of the subject. And copy the URL. Find the entity_id of the profile On a PC browser, you could simply use the \u201cview page source\u201d option to find out the entity_id of the subject. But on a mobile phone, finding the entity_id of a Facebook user is a bit tricky. The easiest way I found was to use an online tool: lookup-id.com. Open lookup-id.com on your mobile browser. Paste the copied URL of the subject\u2019s profile on the search bar of lookup-id.com, and hit the \u201cLookup\u201d button.It will immediately reveal the entity_id number of the subject. If your first attempt fails, try several times. And, copy the revealed entity_id number. Use the graph.facebook.com Now, copy this URL: https:\/\/graph.facebook.com\/USERNAME\/picture?width800. Replace the USERNAME with the copied entity_id number that you found from lookup-id.com. If the entity_id number you found was 123456789, the URL would look like this: https:\/\/graph.facebook.com\/123456789\/picture?width800 Now hit the okay\/enter button and the link will redirect to the URL of the original version of the subject\u2019s profile picture. Let me know what do you think of this trick. Did it help you? Could you avoid or bypass Facebook profile guard and find the actual version of the subject\u2019s profile picture? I hope, yes. But I caution you to not abuse the trick. The credit goes Prosenjit Das who first revealed the trick on Quora. I simply modified it for mobile phone users.
