How To Secure Your Facebook Account
Here is a collection of easy steps and tips to ensure that your Facebook account is secured.
The first security feature that we will cover is;
Login Approvals: The ”login approval feature” on Facebook is a security feature that most people have no idea about, this is feature is quite unique. When turned on or activated, you will be asked to enter a special security code each time you want to access Facebook from another device. this simply means, if you want to log in your facebook account on a new device, browser or computer, you will need to enter a special code.
Once you have logged in, you can save the device or browser you used to log in. so that it won’t prompt you to enter a code next time, your device or browser will be automatically recognized.
This is a very strong way of keeping your Facebook account secure.
Follow the below steps to activate.
Step 1: On your Facebook app, tap the utility button
Step 2: Scroll down and tap account settings, then tap on security
Note: You need to list a mobile phone number on your facebook account to turn on login approvals.
If you have activated the ”login feature”, you can set a third party app to get your login codes, to do this, simply tap the utility button, scroll to the bottom, tap account settings, tap on security, tap on third party authenticator, and then follow the directions to set up.
Now let’s move to the second security measure for your facebook account
Login Alerts: This is similar to login approvals. When ”login alerts” is activated, you will receive notifications whenever someone tries logging into your account from a new device, the alert will come as a text message on your device. To activate to this security step for Facebook accounts simple follow the below steps.
Step 1: Tap the utility button.
Step 2: Scroll down and tap account settings, then tap on security.
Step 3: Finally tap on Login alerts and choose what kind of alerts you want to receive.
Code Generator: The code generator is part of the feature we earlier talked about ”Login Approval”. If you have login approvals turned on, you will be asked for a special code whenever you try to login to your Facebook account from a new mobile phone or computer, code generator is a feature that automatically creates a unique security code in every 30 seconds, this feature can be used even if you do not have access to internet connection.
The code generated from the ”code generator” can be used in addition to your password to log into Facebook, it also comes in handy if you ever need to reset your password.
To get your code(s) using the facebook app code generator.
Step 1: Tap on the utility button.
Step 2: Scroll down and tap code generator.
Other Ways To Secure Facebook Account
Update your Password Regularly
Updating your password frequently is also a good habit. If you ask me, I’d say you should update your facebook password at least once in three weeks, that way it becomes more difficult for your account to get ha*ked, and when picking a new password, be sure not to use passwords that are easy to guess.
For example, your pets name or your kid’s name, or your nickname, use a strong password like ‘mail1236’ or something a bit hybrid like ”best.com/pass.1237” LOL…… But if you want to use a password like that? be sure not to forget it.
Don’t Use the Same Password for Multiple Accounts
This particular point is actually very important, If your account gets ha*ked, there is always the recovery option using your Gmail or Yahoo mail, so here comes my final tip for you *do not use the same password for your Facebook, mail and other platforms* If a ha*ker gets your password? or hacks one of your accounts? Then you are in for a big surprise.
First……You loose virtually all your accounts with the same password
Secondly….. It becomes close to impossible to retrieve accounts
So, try to use different passwords for different accounts (Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo, Twitter and blah blah blah). If you feel a group on Facebook acts as a treat to your account in any way, you can always leave the Facebook group.
And there you have it, I hope these tips help you to secure your Facebook account. It’s time you outsmart those that think they can outsmart you.
