How to Make Your Facebook Mobile Uploads Album Private
Want to know how to make your Facebook 'Mobile Uploads' album private?
Then you are on the right page, because here...
...I will show you step by step how to do this in 2 different ways using a computer with web browser or using the Facebook app on Android smartphones.
When you view your Facebook profile as someone else, you will see that your 'mobile uploads' album is visible for everybody including people who are not your friends on Facebook (public).
This album doesn't have privacy settings and changing the privacy settings for each picture within the album individually is a lot of work – especially if the album contains a lot of photos.
You could also move all the pictures to other albums, but this is also a lot of extra work.
Luckily there's a easier and faster way.
Make Your Facebook Mobile Uploads Album Private - 2 Ways
1. Computer & Web Browser
1 Open Facebook.
2 Open 'Settings'.
Click on the ▼ icon (top right) and choose 'Settings' from the drop-down menu.
3 Click on 'Privacy' (left sidebar).
4 Go to 'Who can see my stuff'.
5 Go to 'Who can see your future posts' and make sure that 'Friends' or 'Only Me' is selected. If not, then click on 'Edit' and change it.
6 Go to 'Limit the audience for posts you've shared with friends of friends or Public?' and click on 'Limit Past Posts'.
7 Click on the 'Limit Old Posts' button.
8 Click on 'Confirm' and the settings will be saved and your 'Mobile Uploads' album will be private.
