All of Facebook's privacy settings are being rolled out to users surfing the site with mobile phones.

Facebook is extending its privacy controls to its mobile users.

The company announced today that all of its privacy settings will now be available to users on any browser-based mobile device.

"As of today, you can use these controls no matter where you are, what kind of device you have access to, or when you want to make a decision about your information," blogged Michael Eyal Sharon, mobile product manager at Facebook.

The new controls can be accessed by navigating to m.facebook.com/privacy or by going to the "Settings" page and clicking the "Change" link next to the words "Privacy Settings." From there, users can select who can view the content they post, read through the site's privacy guide and fully customize their settings.

Facebook updated its privacy controls earlier this year amidst calls by critics to simplify its settings.

"As mobile devices have become more sophisticated and widespread, we've noticed that people are creating content and accessing Facebook at every moment of the day, in many locations-not just from desktops," Sharon wrote.
