From there, the user can then navigate the browser through the touchscreen.

One of these workaround methods is to sneak into the Facebook by opening the User Settings on the Nintendo Switch to link the user’s social profile and then clicking on the link on this page.

This loophole can be sued to not only browser through Facebook but also to sue for watching videos of Facebook. Additional perks are ability check the news feeds of the account, browser through other pages of Facebook and watching videos.

Features of Nintendo Switch’s browser:-

There are many other features of the Nintendo Switch’s browser. The small blue colored dot is a mouse pointer which the user can move with their console’s left joystick.
