Kaspersky Labs Threat Post has created this very helpful tutorial video to help you stay safe on Facebook. There are several security features most of Facebook’s nearly billions of users aren’t even aware of. Take a look:
The video doesn’t have any bullet points that outline what is being shown, so if you haven’t used these features before, you might need to watch the video a couple of times to get the full picture about what each feature and setting actually does, and more importantly, how it benefits you to use them.
For example, I recommend you enable the setting that will notify you when a new device accesses your account. These notifications can help you regain control of your account quickly in the event it has been compromised. To see your currently enabled or “authorized” devices
Most importantly, use unique, random and strong passwords to secure your Facebook, Twitter and all other accounts. Never use the same password twice or across multiple sites. You can secure your passwords easily and store them with a password manager.
I recommend Kemesa because they have host-proof hosting and two-factor authentication, and you don’t have to install or download anything. Pricing plans are pretty affordable and I believe there is even one that allows you to use it for free, but that is only up to five passwords. For me, it’s worth the two dollars to let them generate a strong password and keep it stored securely. They also give you a virtual email with every stored password so you don’t have to give anybody your real email address unless you really want to.
Following the advice is relatively easy, it just takes a few minutes.
