Now facebook doesn’t remain safe at all. Daily we hear the news that my friend, his friend facebook account has been hacked and not only that today nearly more than 2crore Facebook has been hacked. But that doesn’t mean that you being online to your friends but not at the cost of your personal information hacked by unknown person. So, major question is to how to protect our facebook account. Here I follow some steps to protect my account from hackers which is quite simple but very useful and I highly recommend you
to do so… Believe me1 it’s really works!
So the First basic step is:-
1. Change your Facebook password
It is quite possible that someone may have created a fake website that looks like Facebook or another online service you visit and tricked you into logging in. Their aim is to track and steal your password and other account credentials, and they might be succeeding in doing so.
In this case, you should change your password on Facebook within a week or once in a month. If you don’t know how to do so, you can refer to the following guide: How to change your Facebook password.
If changing your password fixes your Facebook problems, you should change your password for all your other services too, especially if you use the same password for them as you previously used on Facebook. If this doesn’t fix the problem, try the next step.
2. Remove unwanted Facebook application
You must have come across the request you receive about some application when you are online. Every Facebook application has certain permissions to your account. Some of these permissions you can modify, while others you cannot.
But by allowing these applications to access you data might create a problem for you in future so you must try to remove these from your facebook account. If you don’t know how to do so, you can refer to the following guide: How to clean up your Facebook apps.
If cleaning up such application fixes your Facebook problems, tell your friends they should do the same. If this doesn’t fix the problem, try the next step.
3. Use better security software and run a virus scan daily
You must seen many different type of viruses while scanning like keylogger, a trojan, or some other type of virus. Even if you think your computer is clean, it’s a request to scan your computer daily and update your Antivirus.
Some of security protection software I would like to recommend for window users are Microsoft Security Essentials –it’s free and gets the job done very well. Another good one is Malwarebytes. Other free alternatives include Avira and Avast.
If you are Mac user, try using the antivirus from Sophos.
After running the virus scan, clean out whatever the program detects. If you have any query about these please lose a comment below.
