Many a times if not often,we hear about people Facebook being hacked.Sometimes we began to ask ourselves how to protect our account from this.
If this is your case,worry no more for you’ve come to the right place.
Today,I am talking about 5 Steps to Protect Your Facebook Account from being Hacked
In my previous article,I talked about ways of hacking a Facebook account in case you are looking for the tut.
1. REVIEW YOUR GRANTED PERMISSIONS TO THIRD PARTY APPS
When you grant a third party permission to share details of your account with them,it is always adviceable to check the permissions granted.E.g. When you play a game on Facebook and a third party application asks for to access your account.Make sure you do not give them full permission.
2. BE CAREFULL OF SPAMMY VIDEO LINKS
Have you ever recieved viral videos,troll videos or any other type of Facebook video spam links? if yes,then from now on,you should not click on those links anymore for they are spams. These types of spam links redirect you another Facebook hacking or phishing page.
3. CHECK THE LINKS YOU CLICK ON FACEBOOK
Sometimes you may witness some links people post on Facebook containing some letters like (say): ?ref=,?referral= or source= just to mention but a few.When clicked,they will lead you to a spammy website.Do not click links you don’t understand or shorteened URLs because most of them are spams.

4. BEWARE OF SOME MESSAGES ON FACEBOOK
If you own popular Facebook pages, then you may have recieved messages with names like (say): Facebook team, Security team,Facebook Security,etc.
Do not click on those links.Because these types of links are often shared by some hacking activist. Note:No Facebook team will ever send you such messages, so don’t forget to report that message.
5. LEARN HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF
According to Facebook,they
continue to work on security even within its platform, but
the social giant cannot ask
you to provide your personal information to play a game or a quiz . In addition, a
local antivirus will not prevent this error.
Ultimately it is up to you to
pay attention and prevent yourself: add your phone
number and change its
privacy to Only me, so even if there is any problem in your account you may easily get it back by making
Facebook send you Code to your Mobile.
With these tips you should learn how to secure your Facebook account.
