Facebook Baits Users with Security Checkup

Facebook Baits Users with Security Checkup

Popular social network, Facebook, has worked hard over the past few years to empower individual users to take action against hackers by using new and improved safeguards produced by the company. However, just because security features are made available doesn’t mean Facebook users are quick to jump to help protect their accounts.

Any hacked account is annoying, so Facebook has built and is testing a new Security Checkup tool that quickly guides users through a few security options that are available. Anyone is able to access these tools via their security settings page. Once there, users simply click through screen prompts to:

  • Change/update passwords;
  • Turn on login alerts;
  • Double check connected apps and devices; and
  • Clean up login sessions.

Facebook is relying on user feedback, hoping to make Security Checkup available whenever users want to use it.

Also, be sure to check out Facebook’s Privacy Basics where you can learn how to keep your account secure.
