Facebook for Android gets Security Checkup tool

Facebook has updated its Android app with new Security Checkup tool that lets you review and add more security to your account. The Facebook Security Checkup tool was introduced for the web in testing back in May and it was expanded worldwide in July. This toll will be available for the iOS app soon, says Facebook.

Security Checkup will help you:

  • Log out of Facebook from unused browsers and apps
  • Get login alerts that notify you if someone tries logging into your account from a new computer or phone
  • Learn how to protect your password

The Facebook Security Checkup tool is available in the latest Facebook for Android update. You can search for “Security Checkup” in the Help Center to access it. Regarding the new feature, Facebook said:

We initially made Security Checkup available on desktop this summer and it quickly caught on with people across our global platform. People told us the tool was helpful and made it easy to add extra protections for their Facebook accounts. So, we’re rolling it out to our Android app so more people can use it.
