Tips and Security Applications for Facebook to secure your Facebook account

The next wave of malware to infect you may well be from the social networking sites. Already Facebook users are facing so many security issues and so this is a good time as any to check up on your Facebook Privacy settings and see if your Facebook account is secure.

There are a few basic things which you can follow to keep your Facebook account safe:

  • Enable Device detection. To do so, go to your Account Settings > Account security and enable the feature which says “When a new computer or mobile device logs into this account”. Check on Send me an email.

  • Periodically check up on the apps you have allowed access to, to your Facebook Account and remove those you no longer require or have doubts about. You can do so through Privacy Settings > Apps and websites > Edit your settings.

  • Take care before you allow access to any new apps or accept new friendship requests. A simple rule to follow: If in doubt; don’t!

You can also secure your Facebook accounts and harden your Facebook security settings by using any of these Security Applications like Norton Safe Web, BitDefender Safego, Defensio for Facebook or ReclaimPrivacy.
