How to make your Facebook “mobile uploads” album private

This tutorial will show you step by step how to make your Facebook “mobile uploads” album private in two different ways using a computer and a web browser or using the Facebook application on an Android phone.

This album doesn't have privacy settings and changing the privacy settings for every picture within the album is a lot of work – especially if the album has a lot of photos.

You could also move all the pictures to other albums, but this is a lot of extra work.

Fortunately, there's an easier and faster way.
