We would have seen in our surroundings that most of the Facebook accounts are being hacked. So, it’s very important to secure our photos and messages form hackers. So, there are many things that every Facebook user must keep in mind while using Facebook to secure their Facebook data from hackers. Through this article, I will convey 5 best tricks to make your Facebook account secure from hackers.
Read the following tips and guidelines carefully to keep your Facebook account secure and safe:
Trick #1: Activate Secure Browsing
Secure browsing is a function of Facebook and I think very few people would know about that. It is very useful function for Facebook users. After activating secure browsing, it automatically protects your account from external applications. Secure browsing limits such application approval requests automatically. To activate secure browsing, open your Facebook account and navigate to Account Settings > Security.
Now click on Edit and Tick Browse Facebook on Secure Connection and then Click on Save Changes.
After clicking on Save Changes, it may ask you to enter your password. So, enter password and Secure browsing will be enabled for your Facebook account.
Trick #2: Create Strong Password
Poor or easily guessable passwords can easily be hacked. So, you should try to make your Facebook password strong. Creating a strong password is not a hard work. You should always choose such a password that hackers can never guess any more. Like don’t use your name, school name, family members name etc. for your password because these can be guess very easily by hackers. Have a look on the following terms to create a strong password.
- Use special characters like ! @ # <> in your password.
- Include numbers in password.
- Facebook account password is case sensitive. So try to use capital letters and small letters together like WelComeFB.
- You can make password like – mysonDOFis1995.
Trick #3: Don’t Use “Keep Me Logged In”
At the Facebook login page, just below the field of email address a check box presents that asks you to check the term “Keep me logged in”. You don’t need to tick this term to make yourself not logged in for that device. If you check this term, anyone can open your account without your permission because you are already logged in to your account. So be aware of it.
Trick #4: Add A Secondary Email
Facebook enables you to add another email with your Facebook account. Honestly, adding a secondary email with your Facebook account is not a security trick but it may help you whenever you will lose your primary email. So, if your primary email and password hacked, it may be your last and only medium to save your account by logging in with your secondary email.
