Meanwhile in light of recent data hacking, Facebook has updated security measures for users on its mobile.
In a post today, the social networking site said that Android users can now get a code generator in order to approval logins for the app.
Now, using Code Generator, users will be able to receive Login Approval codes through your Facebook Application, without waiting on an SMS, and it will work regardless of whether you have cellular or Internet access.
Android users can go to http://on.fb.me/LoginApprovals and to set up a Code Generator. After that they can user the Code Generator within the Facebook for Android app to receive the security code needed to complete a login from a new device. The code will refresh every 30 seconds.
