On Facebook, how do you make all of your Timeline photos private?

Asked by Mama_Cakes (9289 points ) January 24th, 2013

I have over 400 photos there and instead of doing it individually, I would like to make the whole lot private.

I don’t think there’s a way to do that via the security settings any longer… but you can change the settings for each album, so at least you don’t have to go photo-by-photo. Go to Photos > Albums. Don’t open any of the albums. To the right of the number of photos in the album, there’s an icon indicating the security for that album. You can click that to change it. Since photos you post individually on your timeline are all in an album called Timeline, you can change those all at once.

You would probably enjoy Google+ better. If you’re using FB for an image upload site that is!

Log in and go to Photos. Click on your photo and if it was a tagged one see the upper-right corner. Under the name of the friend who tagged you there is a menu saying: allowed on timeline / hide from timeline. Check the second one. I think that this is the only way you can fix this after the changes. I was trying to find the option on privacy..there used to be an option “Who can see this photo” and you could have checked “only me”. If you managed to find it, it should also work.

Go through your privacy settings from the desktop… I recall that there is an option to change all your prior photos somewhere.

I don’t think it can be done with the current set up. As far as I know, you have to do it one photo at a time (which I hate, so if you find another way, let me in on it please.)
