scam your friends. Here are common signs you’ve been hacked.
If you suspect you’ve been hacked but are struggling to find proof, Facebook can quickly help you find out. After signing into your account, click on the menu list in the upper right-hand corner of your page. Select “Settings” followed by “Security and Login”. Then click “Where You’re Logged in”.
A list of all devices currently or recently used to sign into your account, along with their locations, will pop up in a list. If there’s a device or location you don’t recognize, then you’ve been hacked and should follow Facebook’s recommendations to secure your account.
There are ways you can make your Facebook account more secure. First, make sure you protect your profile picture so hackers can’t create a fake profile using your picture and name. To do this, just click on your profile picture and select “Turn on profile picture guard”.
You should also avoid signing in from multiple devices, create a strong password (use a password manager for convenience and security), and periodically check your personal information to make sure nothing has changed. But one of the best ways you can prevent a hack on your account is to make your friends authenticators. If Facebook suspects your account has been hacked, they’ll lock it. If you have this security feature set up, your friends can send you verification codes so you can regain access to your account.
