Giving online privacy a bigger boost, Google+ Photos has launched a locking system where the person sharing photos can locked certain albums that have been uploaded on different circles.
This new feature will prevent others from RESHARING the pictures in a particular album. It can be done in two ways. One can be implemented by from your Photos page and another from album posts in the circle Stream.
So, what does locking an album really means?
Simply put, …..
- Only the person with whom you share will be able to see your photo. That means they cannot reshare it.
- Viewers won't be able to +mention new people
- Photo tags by viewers won’t expand who can see your album
- All of your posts about your album will also be locked
Now, follow this step to lock an album from your Photos page:
1. Click Your albums
2. Click on the album you want to lock
3. Click on who can currently view the album (example. Limited)
4. Select the Lock this album
5. Click Save
The second way of locking an album is from the Stream:
- Find the post with the album you want to lock
- Choose Lock this post from the drop-down menu located at the top right
This feature will definitely make Google+ a “safer and more comfortable place to share your photo memories”.
