This article has compiled 6 security settings that can enhance the safety of your Facebook account; most of the settings are built-in features of Facebook. Maybe you don’t know, or haven’t used these settings at all, just follow my footsteps and adjust and optimize them one by one. By the way, there is no 100% security precaution. What we can do is try to improve the difficulty of the account being hacked. As for the weakness of Facebook itself, it is not the scope we can control.


6 points to keep your Facebook secured.


1 Check the abnormal activity of your account


Facebook has an "Activity Record" feature that allows you to see what actions your account has done at that time. From the top right corner of your Facebook page, find the "Activity History" button. Once you click in, you will be able to see all the activity records of your account, including recent updates, likes, comments, and other operations. It is completely listed in the "Activity History" function, which means if you are not using Facebook all the time, there are a lot of things that you haven't done, so you have to be aware who has logged into your account?


2 Change your password immediately when you find a problem


If you find a problem in the first step - your account has an abnormal activity record, please go to Facebook's "Account Settings" immediately. Click "General" on the left and change a new password. Because you need to enter the current password when you changing a new password. So if you change your password as soon as possible, the intruder can't change it if you change it to a new one.


3 Check if the account is logged in by an abnormal device


Continuing the second step, click on the "Account Security" on the left to find the "Approved Device" list. Here you will find out which devices are currently logged in or have logged in to your account. If you find that is NOT your device (for example, if you use a Mac, but you have a device that logs in from Windows), click the "Remove" link at the back can remove the device.


4 Check if the account has abnormal connection

After checking the device, we will continue to check the "Effective Networking", which will list out the current login, or the stage of logging in to your Facebook account, including the device name, location and category (operating system, browser) will be shown above. As in step 3, if you see a strange activity phase, or if you live in Hong Kong but have a record of logging in from another country, press "Exit" to end the login phase. If you are in serious condition, just click "end all activities" directly.


5 Get alerted when an unknown person logs into your account


Open the second "Login Notification" item and tick the email address, SMS/Push notification (if there is no option behind it, check it back later), when someone logs in from a computer or mobile phone you have never used, Facebook will notify you in these ways.


6 Enable “two-factor authentication” of your Facebook account


Facebook built-in two-factor authentication: after enable this function, any strange computer or device have to enter the original password and the security password that generated by the SMS or the Facebook app. This feature is currently the safest precaution, please be sure to open it.

After clicking "Login Permission", please tick "Require a security password, let me enter my account from an unknown browser" to enter the setting.
