Prevent Your Facebook Account from Hacking

Facebook Accout Hacking

Facebook is absolutely safe as long you do not give your password to anybody else, or as long as nobody is able to recover your password with your personal information.

These are the tips everyone should follow when accessing your facebook accounts:
  1. Never go to facebook via some link. always type in your browesers address bar, If you hate typing ; type it once & then set it as bookmark in the toolbar.
    • Most people who loose facebook accounts loose them because some fraud scammer sent them a link to Phishing domain & got them trapped to put their user name and password on phishing page.
    • When innocent people put their log-in details on a page looking exactly similar to facebook page, The fraudster gets access to username and passwords for free.
  2. Choose your recovery questions wisely:
    • Another popular method of hacking facebook accounts is to recover the passwords using personal details
    • My friend Jay used to enjoy this stuff quite a lot, He used to login to other people’s orkut accounts and would post all the nasty stuff. Which was really funny. The most common question used to be, My first mobile number: hack; thats the stupidest question ever seen as password recovery option.
    • Make it difficult to guess, Your seucrity qustion has to be unique, such as my Grand Father’s sister’s name: etc….
  3. Increase your recovery options; Go to & update your email addresses and cellphone numbers.
    • Incase if you happen to loose your facebook account, As a last resort this is what will help you out.
