Posted September 28, 2018 08:10:00Facebook has updated its app’s password setting, making it simpler to change your password and give your friends the option to change their.
The app now lets users choose a password that is the same for all their accounts, and they can change it once a day.
“We’re working on making this a bit easier to understand and use, and we want to make sure that we’re always adding to it and making it better,” said the app’s general manager, Emily Houghton.
The new setting, announced in an update to the app on Tuesday, is called “Passwords for Friends.”
It allows users to change one of two passwords that appear next to their profile picture, like your name or your Facebook username.
If you use two different passwords, it’ll appear in the “friends” section.
If neither of those appear, you can choose one from the “Choose One” box.
You can change a password by selecting the “Change Password” link in the top right corner of the settings page.
Once you’ve chosen a password, it will appear in a list of options.
Here you can set the default password and choose whether to use the new password for your account or just a random password from the list.
Users can change passwords for friends and family, as well.
“Once a friend or family member has changed their password, they can set their own password in their profile,” the update explains.
“In this way, it’s always up to them.”
Users can also choose to use a custom password, which Facebook will display on your profile.
Users will be able to choose a custom name for their account if they want, as long as it doesn’t appear on the “passwords for friends” section or on your “profile” page.
“For those who like to share and communicate via email, we’ve added an option to add a name for your email address, and if you choose that name, we’ll send it to you,” the updated app reads.
“If you choose to add that name to your email, it may be used for your friends’ email address too, but you won’t see it on your friends list.
It’s an option you can select to add to your friends.”
Facebook says it’s adding this feature to “improve security for people who want to keep their information private.”
The app also says it is adding support for multiple password formats and other features to “make it easier for people to set up and use their accounts.”
It’s not clear how much of a change it will be, and Facebook says it will work with developers to make the change more accessible.
But it could be a boon to those who don’t want to change a single password for all of their friends, friends of friends, or even their entire family.
“I think it’s an important thing that people who are already using Facebook should be able [to do], but I think the biggest benefit is for those who haven’t been using Facebook for a while,” Houghley said.
“It will make it easier to set your own password, but it will also make it really easy for you to share your password with other people.”
