FOUR WAYS TO HELP PROTECT YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT
The product manager with Facebook Account #Security, Heidi Shin said, “ His team has redesigned security options you can use to help you protect your account.” He said further that, “They have redesigned the security settings (https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-security/focused-on-clarity-facebook-redesigns-security-settings-page/10154455181905766/) to improve the usability of our security features, and I will like to highlight some you might find helpful.” This measure is to ensure safety of Facebook users across the world.
- Two-Factor Authentication (https://web.facebook.com/…/stay-safe-and-se…/login-approvals):
When you turn on two-factor authentication, you’ll be asked to enter a login code each time you access your Facebook account from a new device or computer. This easy tool adds an extra layer of control to help you protect your account.
- Security Checkup (https://www.facebook.com/help/799880743466869):
In three simple steps, you can review these security options to help make your Facebook account more secure. It only takes a few minutes to check where you’re logged in, make a unique password, and set up alerts so you’ll be notified if someone tries to access your account.
- Get alerts about unrecognized logins (https://web.facebook.com/…/stay-safe-and-secure/login-alerts):
We’ll let you know if anyone logs in from a device or browser you don’t usually use. If you get a notification about an unrecognized login, and you know it wasn’t you who tried to log in, let us know and we’ll help you secure your account.
- Blocking (https://web.facebook.com/…/stay-sa…/unfriending-and-blocking)
The blocking tool helps you control who sees the things on your profile and manage your interactions on Facebook.
In addition to offering these tools, we’re always on the lookout for suspicious activity. Our systems run in the background millions of times per second to help catch security threats and remove them before they ever reach you. If we see anything suspicious concerning your account we’ll let you know.
To learn more about these options and how to take advantage of them, I encourage you to check out your security settings at facebook.com/settings.
