Enable Two-Factor Authentication to Add Extra Security to Your Facebook Account

Facebook has become a must have feature for us and at the same time it is becoming more fragile. It is our responsibility to secure and here is the way. Click the link at the bottom for full article.

This week, Facebook started rolling out two-factor authentication, just like Gmail recently did. When enabled, Facebook will ask you to enter a code any time you log into Facebook from a new device. Thus, if someone gets a hold of your Facebook password, they won’t be able to log into a computer you haven’t already used, since they won’t know that code. It isn’t as useful if, say, someone steals your laptop, though, since you will have already activated Facebook on that device.

In addition, Facebook’s also fixed problems with the HTTPS support they recently added. When it first rolled out, it would set you back to HTTP whenever you used a Facebook application, and leave you there until you manually navigated back to the HTTPS version. Now, Facebook has fixed this issue, automatically sending you back to secure pages when you leave the insecure application pages. If you don’t already have this enabled,we highly recommend it.
