Facebook isn’t Save Anymore, Never Give a Huge Hope
Here are a few things you can do to keep your account safe:
Protect your password
Don’t use your Facebook password on other online sites, and never share your password with anyone else.
Your password must be difficult to guess, so don’t include common names or words.
Learn more about creating strong passwords.
Never share login information
The fraudster might create a fake website similar to Facebook and ask you to log in with your email and password.
Always check the website URL before entering your login information. When in doubt, type www.facebook.com in the browser to log in to Facebook.
Don’t forward emails from Facebook to other people because they can contain sensitive information about your account.

Log out from Facebook if you use a computer with other people
If you forget, you can log out remotely.
Don’t accept friend requests from people you don’t know
Frauders will create fake accounts to make friends with Facebook users.
Making friends with fraudsters allows them to send spam to the timeline, tag you in posts, and send you dangerous messages.
Be careful with malware
Malware can cause damage to computers, servers, or computer networks.
Learn the signs of an infected computer or device and how to remove the malware.
Always update your browser and delete suspicious applications or browser add-ons.
Never click on a suspicious link, even if the link was sent by a friend or company you know
This includes links on Facebook (for example: in posts) or in emails.
Remember that Facebook never asks for your password via email.
If you see a suspicious link on Facebook, report it immediately.
Use extra security options
You can get an unknown login notification, set up two-factor authentication, or choose a friend to make as your trusted contact.
If you log in to Facebook on a computer, you can use Security Check to review your security settings.
