In the world today, Facebook is the most widely used social networking platform, with many of us using it at home and at work.
Because of the platform’s growing popularity among users, hackers and other cyber criminals are attempting to break into your account.
It is difficult to go through the trauma of having your Facebook account hijacked and trying to recover it.
Here are seven measures you may take to better prepare yourself for a circumstance like this.
How to make your Facebook account more secure:
Step 1: Go to your Facebook account’s “Settings and Privacy” page after logging in.
Step 2: From the menu, go to the ‘Security and login’ settings.
Step 3: To see all of your open sessions, go to the ‘Where you’re logged in’ option. If you see any sessions that you don’t recognize, log out of them right away by clicking on the three-dot menu and selecting ‘Log out.’ You’ll also be able to log out of all of your sessions at once.
Step 4: Select the edit button next to ‘Save your login information’ under the ‘Login’ options. This option indicates whether or not your login information is saved on the computer for quicker login. It’s fine to save your login information if this is your own computer and you’re the only one who has access to it. Otherwise, click on ‘Remove account’ to delete your saved login information if it is saved on a public or office computer that others have access to.
Step 5: Turn on two-factor authentication (2FA) under the ‘Two-factor authentication’ (2FA) setting by selecting the edit button next to the ‘Use two-factor authentication’ option and following the on-screen instructions.
You can generate your login code with an authenticator app or receive it by SMS. As soon as you enable Two-factor authentication, remember to produce and save your backup codes.
After that, you will be prompted to input the 2FA code after entering your login password every time you log in to your account.
