JavaScript Object freeze() | Method

  • by

JavaScript Object freeze() method is used to prevent the modification of an object by making its properties read-only. When an object is frozen using Object.freeze(), its properties become read-only and cannot be changed, added, or removed.


JavaScript Object freeze() example

<!DOCTYPE html>

JavaScript Object freeze() Method

This method can be used to ensure that an object’s values remain consistent throughout the program and that unintended changes do not occur.

Note: This only freezes the object’s immediate properties. If an object property is an object itself, that property’s properties are not automatically frozen. You would have to use Object.freeze() on the nested object to freeze it completely.
