Securing Your Facebook Account



Facebook has become an important part of one's daily life, and because of the rampant hacking, it's imperative that you take the necessary steps to stay safe online.

Not only can unauthorized access reveal some of your most sensitive information, it can also lead hackers into other apps and accounts you're connected to.

Fortunately, Facebook takes security very seriously, and has added a number of tools and features designed to ensure that you and only you can get access.

Before your next round of News Feed browsing and status updating, make sure you switch them on.

Make your account more secure by making sure that your password cannot be easily guessed. Stay away from birth dates, and names. Avoid using your pet's name too - especially if your account revolves around your beloved fur baby. 


We always recommend turning on the two-step verification too, an extra layer of security now available on most online accounts, from Google to Twitter. It means that your account can't be accessed with a username and password alone.

In Facebook's case, you also need a code from a phone that's verified and linked to your account. 

Get this set up by opening up Facebook settings on the web, then clicking Security and login, followed by the Edit button next to the heading marked Use two-factor authentication. You can have your extra code posted to you via SMS whenever you need to access your account from a new device, or generate codes through the Facebook app for Android or iOS.

 Another option is the Get alerts about unrecognised logins one. Click Edit here then turn notifications on, and you'll get mobile alerts and emails if someone tries to access your account from an unrecognized device (one you haven't used before). If it's not you doing the accessing, you can quickly block the request. 


Checking for suspicious activity is another way to keep your information safe online.

Keep tabs on where your account is being accessed.

Another way hackers can gain access to your account is through third-party apps you've connected. Open the Apps page and again remove access to any apps or services you don't need any more (like that dating app you ditched three years ago). These connections aren't necessarily dangerous, but the fewer of them you have, the safer you are.

If you tighten the privacy around your Facebook account, chances are, hackers, marketers and stalkers alike are left with very little to work with.

Again, be vigilant. Make sure you're running up-to-date software at all times, with a solid antivirus tool installed, and avoid any suspect-looking browser extensions or Facebook add-ons that come from unknown developers, as they may well be looking for an easy way to get into your account.
