Security Tip’s : For Facebook Account

Facebook is defined as an online social networking website where people can create profiles, share information such as photos and quotes about themselves, and respond or link to the information posted by others.
The most popular social networking site, which allows anyone to share photos, comments and videos online. Founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, the site is free to members and derives its revenue from ads. The Facebook name came from the paper document with names and faces issued to college freshmen to help them get acquainted with each other. Using the built-in search, members can locate other Facebook members and “friend” them by sending them an invitation, or they can invite people to join Facebook . Facebook offers instant messaging and photo sharing, and Facebook’s email is the only messaging system many students ever use. 

Security tips

With cybercriminals using a wide range of financial scams in order to try to steal money  and criminals also making bogus ‘friend requests’ in order to capture personal information — it’s wise to be careful in how you use Facebook. 
  • Verify every Facebook contact
    Make sure that the person you’re talking to, really is the person you think they are. Try to verify their identity.


  • Protect your banking and financial information
    Never disclose anything about your bank accounts, credit cards, debit cards, or other financial information on Facebook.


  • Don’t accept friend requests from people you don’t know
    • Scammers may create fake accounts to friend people.
    • Becoming friends with scammers might allow them to spam your timeline, tag you in posts and send you malicious messages.
  • Keep your password secure

    Taking a little extra care over your password can be a vital element in your Facebook security:

    • Create a strong password that will be difficult for others to guess
    • Ideally, your password should use a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols
    • Remember to change your password frequently
    • Don’t use the same password for Facebook and other websites. If the security of your password is compromised on one site, it may then be used to access your Facebook account
