We all know how important Facebook is now part of our lifestyle. We update Facebook more often than sipping water. We share photos, personal information, status, thoughts and almost every moment on Facebook with our family & friends…..but sometime we don’t know who all can have access to the moments we really don’t wanna share with them. Everyone knows we can’t stop facebooking even though we have risk of sharing information with strangers across the world
Q: How can we avoid being so vulnerable to these hazards???
A: Facebook has Comprehensive Security features to help us………….but we never looked at that part which is most important.
One can secure its Facebook Account from unknown threat by applying few simple steps
Facebook profile has 4 Main Parts
Wall, Profile (Info), Photos, Friends
1) Wall is where we update our status, get comments on it and also our friends make post on it
2) Info is where we share what we are, Education, Working Exp., Email, Phone Number, Other Contact details, Views and much more
3) Photo: Uploaded Album from PC and Mobile Devices, Profile Photos, also Videos
4) Friends: List of Our Friends
You can set security to each of them as per need
The most important part is to protect Photos & Contact Details, you can do this very quickly from the following steps
And in the “Sharing of Facebook” section select either “Friends Only” (Highly Recommended) or “Friends of Friends” and click on “Apply These Settings” button. The “Recommended” settings is selected by default but this will make your status, photos, posts etc. visible to everyone on Facebook so I say its not recommended
Let’s take a look at Visibility of Profile
Another Security feature is it allows to hide yourself from getting searched by unknowns or stop Receiving Friends Request or Message and much more.
After making setting you can click on “Preview My Profile” to take a look on how your profile will be visible to others
Note : Here Facebook uses autosave function, which means just make any setting as per your like and it will be autosaved so here there is no need to press any save button
