How to prevent your facebook account from getting hacked?

Use facebook securely

Facebook offers a lot of security features and options that help to protect your account.

However, most users don't use these features and as a result, their accounts end up getting hacked.






What are the different ways to secure your Facebook account?
The different ways  to secure your account using Facebook Security settings are as follows:

1. Enable Login Alerts

The login alerts feature notifies the user when and from where the Facebook account was accessed.

As soon as you enable this setting, you will get a notification on Facebook and also on email.


2. Enable Login Approvals

You can also alternatively enable two factor authentication in Facebook where you will get a code via SMS if you have added a valid phone number.


3. Remove unrecognised devices from your account along with old devices
