Over 200 million people use Facebook on their mobile phones to share photos, access applications and stay connected with friends. In October, we added a dashboard to give you a way to clearly see and control the ways applications use your information. Today, we're making these same controls available on your mobile phone so you can update and manage the information you share from wherever you want.
In addition to your current privacy controls on mobile, now you can see a detailed view of the information you've shared with various... applications and websites and adjust your settings on the go. A full list of all the applications you use, along with when they last accessed your information, is now available in the Applications and Websites section of your privacy settings.
In the example below, you can see that I use Facebook to sign into Loopt. On my mobile settings page, I can now control the information I've allowed Loopt to access, such as whether or not my check-ins can be used to personalize my experience.
Other settings you can adjust include access to your basic profile information, photos and videos, friends' information and more. To see your privacy controls on mobile, go to m.facebook.com/privacy or visit the Settings page and click the "Change" link next to "Privacy Settings."
These new mobile features will begin rolling out to everyone over the next few weeks. It's important for you to always have control over the information you want to share. And as more people use their phones to connect and share information, we'll continue to innovate and improve your mobile privacy controls so you can enjoy Facebook wherever you go.
