So should you.
All mobile OS will enjoy this new feature. But, Android is the first. There are reasons for this:
- Android runs most mobile devices today.
- Android huge user base is crucial. It provides more data about how this feature works. That’s compared to other OS. This is necessary for further development.
So, how exactly can you enable it? Is it hidden somewhere? Where can you find this Facebook security checkup?
