5 Facebook Security Tips To Safeguard Facebook Account


Do you think your Facebook account is safe or your privacy is protected from the folks? If not then you should take some immediate actions to safeguard your Facebook account security and privacy. Here are 5 awesome tips on Facebook security.

1. Log-in to a public computer using Facebook One Time Passwords For better Security:Public computers are apt to spy on your browsing activity; some one can record your keystrokes by installing the keylogger application or record your activities by a spy camera to hack your Facebook user name and password. But you can avert your original Facebook log- in details by using Facebook One Time Passwords.

To get the Facebook one time password you’ll have to add a mobile no at your Facebook profile (Login to Facebook account > Profile > Edit my profile > Contact information). Now simply send a text message to 32665 with “otp” (without quotes). Facebook will send a temporary user name and password for logging into your Facebook account. This user name and password is valid for only the first time log-in. So, if any body record that and try to login later using that details, he/she will be misguided as that details won’t work for second time log-in.

Note: Your original user name and password is still active and you can log-in to your Facebook account at anytime using the original details.

This Facebook feature is only available in U.S. But we expect that Facebook will set out this facility for other countries.

2. Use Remote Log-out feature: In general people forget to log-out from their Facebook account when leaving the public computer. It is very dangerous and you can loss all of your privacy even the access to your Facebook account. In this case you must take a quick action before any one get into your account from that account. Facebook has integrated the Remote log-out feature. You can monitor your account activity with the device information and the place name.

To view your Facebook account activity, log-in to your Facebook account and go to Account > Account Settings > Account security, now click on “Change”. It will show the latest activity of your account like from where your account has been accessed etc.





If  you see any suspicious activity like the place that you never visited or the system configuration that does not match with yourself, just terminate the activity on those suspicious PC by clicking on “End activity”.

3. Enable Login notification: Under Account > Account Settings > Account security you will see the Log-in notification feature (see the above screen-shot). By default it remains disabled. By enabling that feature, you will get a notification SMS or email whenever a new device or computer is logged in to your account.

4. Keep your password strong: Keeping a strong password is always a good way to turn the clever password cracker into an idiot. They always participate in guessing or cracking password by some methods like brute force method etc. So choose a password wisely so that it contains both the capital and small letters, numeric characters, and atleast one or two symbolic character like ^, {, @ etc. Your password should contain minimum 6 character because the brute force programs try to match all the combination of the character one by one. So a large number of character means a large number of combination and that will keep busy the program for a long time to match your whole password.

5. Secure your birth date: Birth date is very important for your unique identification. So do not show the full birth date publicly at your Facebook profile.

So keep your Facebook account secured to safeguard your privacy and important data.
