Fend off Facebook hackers
Hi, I'm Sharon Vaknin and today I'm showing you how to safely browse Facebook and find out hackers with an easy security setting.
Recently, Facebook learned that even its own founder can get hacked.
Mark Zuckerberg's fan page was hijacked and now the company has finally decided to do something about its user's security.
Until now, the only way to encrypt your Facebook sessions was to download a browser add on or manually enter each https in the address bar.
With https, that is ensured that the communication between you and your web server is private, so that no one can eavesdrop on your activity.
So, let me show how to officially enable https browsing.
From any page, add to account and select account settings.
From here, add to account security.
Here check out browse Facebook on a secure connection.
If you don't see the option yet, be patient.
Facebook is slowly rolling out the features to all of its users.
Until then, you continue to ask yourself if you like.
You'll also see a privacy feature that allows you to be notified when a new device logs into your account.
Consider enabling this one too.
You never know if an ex or if an enemy is logging into your account with your credentials.
Save your settings, and you're ready to go.
But we warned, Facebook features always come with effects.
Some pages will load slower and certain 3rd party apps don't support the feature, but that's a small price to pay for the added security.
For cnet.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin and I'll see you on the encrypted inter webs.
