The Object isFrozen() method

Published Apr 10 2019

Psssst! The 2023 WEB DEVELOPMENT BOOTCAMP is starting on FEBRUARY 01, 2023! SIGNUPS ARE NOW OPEN to this 10-weeks cohort course. Learn the fundamentals, HTML, CSS, JS, Tailwind, React, Next.js and much more! ✨

Accepts an object as argument, and returns true if the object is frozen, false otherwise. Objects are frozen when they are return values of the Object.freeze() function.


const dog = {}
dog.breed = 'Siberian Husky'
const myDog = Object.freeze(dog)
Object.isFrozen(dog) //true
Object.isFrozen(myDog) //true
dog === myDog //true

In the example, both dog and myDog are frozen. The argument passed as argument to Object.freeze() is mutated, and can’t be un-freezed. It’s also returned as argument, hence dog === myDog (it’s the same exact object).
