Just in case you missed it, it is reported that Facebook’s recent hack issue had affected over 50 million Facebook users in the past week. If you were logged out of your Facebook, there is a possibility that your account might have been compromised. However, Facebook explained in its digital newsroom that their engineers have deployed an immediate fix and tightened its security features to combat the hack while further investigation is still on-going.
Here are some suggestions on how you can keep your account secure:
1. Change your passwords regularly. If you’re worried that you might forget them, come up with your own password generator or system that is easy for you to remember yet difficult enough for other people to guess! A mix of special characters and numbers will increase its strength.
2. Avoid putting in additional info such as your mobile numbers, address or location. These information can easily be abused by irresponsible users and hackers to access your account.
3. Always remember to log out whenever you log in to your account on a different device.
