According to a Facebook announcement, the social network’s mobile apps will get new security features including password reset and social reporting.
Social reporting is already available in the web version of Facebook, and users are encouraged to report any content they are unhappy with both to the person who has posted the content and to Facebook.
Now that the social reporting feature will be available on Facebook mobile as well, the Facebook environment has become more secure for users. Facebook has said that most app developers remove offensive content on their own when users report it to them and to Facebook.
The other new security feature, mobile password reset, was announced on Monday. Using this, mobile users can confirm their identity before the password is delivered to their preferred email address — the details have not been elaborated on the Facebook blog post though.
The blog post says, “If you ever forget your password or get locked out of your account, we want to make it easy to get back on Facebook. We are testing improvements to resetting your password from your mobile device. You can now choose the email address where you want to receive recovery links, and we are offering additional ways to confirm your identity.”
