There are hundreds of millions of people out there who use Facebook on the daily, who think that their profiles are safe because they know the passwords to their account, and others don't - and these people need to read this news, now.

The social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg has just forced a not-so-friendly anti-privacy rule, that stops you from being able to hide your profile from searches. Although, Facebook did say it was going to do this a year ago, so here we are. Last December, an option called "Who cal look up your Timeline by name" was removed for people who weren't using it.

 

But those who opted in for the feature continued on with it, until now. The social network has said that the small number of people still using the privacy setting will see reminders of its impending removal within the next couple of weeks.
