How to Set up Facebook 4 Digit Passcode Login on Android

Facebook provides an option for 4 digit passcode login, if you are accessing it from a mobile web browser like Google Chrome (Android) and Safari (iOS). This type of login saves your time and effort and lets you open profile just by tapping profile picture and entering the 4 digit code that you set up earlier. Normally, facebook reminds you to enable it just once and if you tap “Now now“, it does not show again next time you try to login your profile. But don’t worry, there is an easy fix for that.
