Now in these article we are going to discuss six steps on how to secure your Facebook account.....

 if you suspect that your account has been hacked the first thing to do is to;

1) change your password: in changing your password don't you ever use you're name,pet name,birthday and common use words.make it difficult to guess,because if you don't it will be easier for the hacker to manipulate your password.

  A strong password must be at least 8 in character in length,the longer {more character} your password is the better,because it will take more time for the hacker to crack it.

2) change your password once in every six months: these apply to all your password not only to your Facebook account,never share it with any one.if you will find it hard to remember it,just set a remainder in your calendar.

3)  never use your Facebook password anywhere else: whenever you create an account on different platform,ensure that you create a different password for each website you use.

4) never use the remember me password featured on the web browser: these is another way that hackers are using especially when you are using someone else computer. All you need to do is when "the remember me password"suggestion pop's on the screen, just click NOT NOW option.
   However, if you have set a master password for your browser,you can choose the" remember me"feature.using the feature will make anyone trying to see your password enter another password set by you.

5) type your password into a trusted computer: if you are using a computer that you don't know or trust,avoid doing anything that requires you entering your password.hackers commonly use keystroke loggers on computer system that records anything you type including your password.
  If it seems impossible for you to avoid typing your password into a computer you don't trust/know,change your password as soon as you can once you're are back to your own computer.
