How to Secure your Facebook Accounts (Fresh Method 2011)



Facebook has made new changes such as improving the site's privacy and security features. Most of these improvements and changes have only been unveiled on Facebook's official blog and non-official blog sites like Greenhathacker.blogspot.com that follow Facebook news articles.








Facebook users who do not read the Facebook official blog might have missed the important updates on privacy and security enhancements. Facebook's latest features are added as opt-in features, which probably means that majority of Facebook members might have not turned on or enabled them yet on their accounts



We provide a quick tutorial about the newest improvements that you should know. Here are the important changes and short guides to improve and fully protect the login, password, and security of your Facebook profile.


Protect and Secure Facebook Account



Some of the latest features are about Facebook login safety. That includes a very strong account password. A strong password means you have to combine letters (upper case and lower case), special characters, and numbers. Make your password at least 10 characters long. But, for safety, it is recommended to make it 15 or more characters.



Change Facebook password




If you want to edit your password and make it a strong one, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to Facebook.
  2. On the top right of your screen, click on Account.
  3. Select Account Settings.
  4. Look for Password.
  5. Click on change next to Password.
  6. In the Old Password field, type your current password.
  7. Type your new strong password in the New Password field.
  8. Re-type your new strong password in the Confirm Password field.
  9. Click on the Change Password button.
