Facebook is considered to have improved their security features and privacy settings, and it seems that there are no ways to view private pictures at the moment. But a new trick has just been posted that break past the security blockade facebook has put and lets you view private photos on Facebook of people that have not/will not add you as their friend and do not allow non-friends to view their information like pictures.

Just follow the steps below in order to view Private photos, even if their privacy settings don’t let you see their photo album.

DISCLAIMER: Facebook could take action on your account should this be abused. It is strongly recommended to use this hack on a dummy account if you care about keeping your Facebook profile active.

Step 1: Locate the Facebook profile of the person who you want to view photos of.

Step 2: Click on Report/Block. A popup menu will appear, just select Inappropriate Profile photo. Then press continue.

Step 3: Select Nudity or pornography and press continue.

Step 4: Check Report to Facebook and press continue.

Step 5: Select Help us take action by selecting additional photos to include with your report and press Okay.


View Private Facebook photo Album

The pics appear too small. Follow the steps to view the locked facebook images bigger or in its original resolution.

If you’re using Google Chrome, then right click on the image and select “Inspect Element”. Your cursor will land to a URL. Just copy the url into another window and then change the ‘a’ to ‘n’ (the last one right before jpg) =fullsize original image. Using this method the image will keep its original resolution.

In FireFox, right click the image. Now ctrl+left click the “View background Image” that should open a new tab with the photo and then you can change the end from a to n, simple and effective.

Reporting an image on Facebook is anonymous. The facebook account holder will not receive any notification from Facebook unless their picture is removed. Even then it will not tell them who reported their image.

But Facebook can easily figure out your FB account which reported the photos. If they see too many false reports coming from your account, they might permanently close your. So, do not use your main account for using the hack.

Sound off in comments, if the hack works for you.
