  • Don’t share your password.
  • Change your password on a regular basis.  
  • Share your personal information only with people and companies that need it.
  • Log into Facebook only ONCE each session. If it looks like Facebook is asking you to log in a second time, skip the links and directly type into your browser address bar.
  • Use a one-time password when using someone else’s computer.
  • Log out of Facebook after using someone else’s computer.
  • Use secure browsing whenever possible.
  • Only download Apps from sites you trust.
  • Keep your anti-virus software updated.
  • Keep your browser and other applications up to date.
  • Don’t paste script (code) in your browser address bar.
  • Use browser add-ons like Web of Trust and Firefox’s NoScript to keep your account from being hijacked.
  • Beware of “goofy” posts from anyone—even Friends. If it looks like something your Friend wouldn’t post, don’t click on it.
  • Scammers might hack your Friends’ accounts and send links from their accounts. Beware of enticing links coming from your Friends.
Hope you liked the post and would share with your friends to make them secured also.
