5 WAYS TO PROTECT YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT FROM HACKERS

1

It is not that hard to protect your account. Just follow these guidelines, and you’ll be good to go:

1) AVOID SAVING PASSWORDS ON PUBLIC DEVICES

Cybercafés are awesome alternatives when you do not have any data on your device. They are also reserve for passwords since most people just click on ‘yes’ on the save password dialog box.

They do so because of the rush they face during browsing. This might also happen to you. If you do not have a device to browse the web, never save your passwords on a device you have no control over.

The password will remain there, and someone will definitely log into your account without any hustle.

2) ALWAYS LOG OUT ON OTHER DEVICES

Not saving your password is not the only way to prevent hacking on public devices. Leaving your account logged in also paves the way for hackers to take control of your account.

Even if you close the browser after a session, Facebook will recognize the session as continuous for a while. If a person comes in just right after you, he should have access to your account.

You have to ensure that you have logged out and that neither your number nor email address is displayed in the authentication tabs. You’ll otherwise find some nasty posts up on your wall if the guy is aiming to destroy you.

3) OPT FOR TWO-WAY VERIFICATION

This feature sends an authentication message to your phone every time you or a hacker tries to log in to your account. You can use this through third-party software or Facebook’s verification mechanism.

When logging in, you receive a unique code that will enable you to access Facebook in that session only. Once the session has ended, you will need to receive another authentication message to access your account once more.

I know it is super inconvenient to go through all that instead of a once-click login. It is, however, better to be safe than sorry.

4) CLEAN UP YOUR BROWSER

It is always advisable to clean up your browser every once in a while….

Most phishing and virus activities are found in porn and torrent sites. If you are a frequent visitor (not judging), always clear your data before someone gains access to your authentication details.

If that seems like much of a hustle, just download an adware removal tool to take care of that for you. The next person trying to hack you will not find the ones and zeros he/she is phishing for.

5) PROTECT YOURSELF FROM SPYWARE AND MALWARE

The hacking problems are not only web-based. A person can hack your browser through malicious software you may have unknowingly installed on your computer.

Some of these software could also spam some pop-up ads onto your screen or browser. You can avoid this by using malware, adware, and spyware removers.

If your Facebook account has already been hacked, don’t panic. There are lots of ways you can recover a hacked Facebook account.
