Protect your password

Most users keep their passwords intuitive for fear of forgetting them. From time to time, cybersecurity experts have been warning about passwords that can be easily guessed.

So always keep a long password. Strengthen your password by adding lowercase letters, uppercase letters, special characters, numbers, and more. Also, keep different passwords for different accounts. So that Facebook is safe when any other account is hacked.

This way you can keep track of where your Facebook is logged in and from where you can even log out.

Be aware of the apps associated with the account

Don't give messenger unnecessary permissions

When you install Messenger on your mobile, it asks for other permissions as well as messages on the mobile. You do not have to give this kind of permission.

Don't even add your mobile number. There is no need to panic if this happens by mistake. You can uninstall the Messenger app and reinstall it.

Be careful when using the Login with Facebook feature

If you have noticed, you may have seen the option to log in with Facebook while registering on various websites and apps. So this feature is considered safe.

But you have to take care of which app you are giving permission to. Sometimes some apps even take permission to post on your Facebook wall. Later on, it causes a lot of trouble.

Use two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication is considered very secure for Facebook login. When you activate this feature, Facebook sends a code to your mobile number when logging in to a new device or browser.

You can log in to Facebook only after entering the correct code on your mobile. What is the benefit of this is that if someone tries to log in to your Facebook with the wrong intention, they will not get access to your Facebook.
