Customizing Facebook Privacy Settings and Permissions

Even though your Facebook profile can be viewed by any Facebook user, you can restrict its comments from being displayed to everyone. With some smart privacy configurations, you can specify who can view your posts, comment on your posts, post something on your Facebook timeline, view your photo albums, view your friends’ list, etc.

Since many users use their smartphones to access their Facebook accounts, here is how your Facebook privacy settings and permissions can be customized using your Android mobile phone:

    ■Turn on your Android smartphone by pressing the power button.
    ■Tap the Menu icon to go to the apps list.

    ■Locate and tap the Facebook app icon.

    ■If prompted, provide your login credentials in the appropriate fields, and tap Log In.

    ■On the opened Home page, tap the More icon (icon with the three horizontal lines) from the top-right corner.

    ■On the More window, under the HELP & SETTINGS section, tap Account Settings.

    ■From the Settings interface, tap Privacy.

    ■Once the How You Connect interface comes up, tap to select the desired option that you want to customize. (E.g. Who can see your future posts in this demonstration.)

    ■From the next interface, tap to choose the desired privacy setting from the available options.

    ■Once done, close and reopen the Facebook app to make sure that the settings become applicable.

You must follow the steps from 7 to 9 individually for each privacy setting that you want to customize.
