The Facebook Safety Team has just announced that Facebook is adding new security features to the Facebook apps, and Facebook for mobile sites.
Facebook’s social reporting is now available from mobile devices, so you can act quicker on content that is associated to you. For example, you can ask Facebook to take action if you don’t like a Facebook photo of you that was uploaded by a third party. This functionality is now accessible via m.facebook.com.
Secondly, Facebook now lets users reset their passwords from mobile devices. Again, this can make a difference if your account has been hacked and you need to lock it down quickly. As usual, a recovery password will be sent to the email address that you have on file. There are other means of verifying your identity, we assume by adding questions like financial services do.
How much do you care about Facebook security? Is a potential breach high on your list of worries?
