If you utilize Facebook services with the only the default username and password authentication you are at risk. Even if you have an account that you rarely access.

Nothing can keep your Facebook account “secure”, but can greatly lessen your risks by following the steps below and enabling dual factor authentication.

From Facebook:           

Two-factor authentication is a security feature that helps protect your Facebook account in addition to your password. If you set up two-factor authentication, you'll be asked to enter a special login code or confirm your login attempt each time someone tries accessing Facebook from a computer or mobile device we don't recognize. You can also get alerts when someone tries logging in from a computer we don't recognize.

To turn on or manage two-factor authentication:

  1. Go to your Security and Login Settings by clicking  Facebook Scroll Down Image in the top-right corner of Facebook and clicking Settings > Security and Login.
  2. Scroll down to Use two-factor authentication and click Edit.
  3. Choose the authentication method you want to add and follow the on-screen instructions.
  4. Click Enable once you've selected and turned on an authentication method.

There are several two-factor authentication methods you can use with your Facebook account when logging in from an unrecognized computer or mobile device. To get started with two-factor authentication, choose either:

  • Text message (SMS) codes from your mobile phone.
    • Go to your Security and Login Settings.
    • Scroll down to Use two-factor authentication and click Edit.
    • If you haven't set up two-factor authentication before, you'll have to click Get Started. You may be asked to re-enter your Facebook password at this point.
    • Click Text Message when you're asked to choose your security method and follow the on-screen instructions.
    • Once you've turned on text message (SMS) codes, you should also set up a second security feature, such as trusted contacts or recovery codes. This helps to protect you in case your mobile phone is lost, stolen or hacked.
  • Login codes from a third party authentication app.
    • A third-party authentication app (such as Google Authenticator or LastPass) can be used to generate login codes that help us confirm it's you when you log in from a new device for the first time.
    • Install a third-party authentication app on your device. It's best to install the app on the device you normally use to access Facebook.
    • Go to your Security and Login Settings.
    • Scroll down and click Use two-factor authentication.
    • Click Get Started. You may be asked to re-enter your password at this point.
    • Click Authentication App when you're asked to choose your security method.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions.

You'll need to have at least one of these set up in order to use two-factor authentication. Once you have added either text message (SMS) codes or a third party authentication app on your account, you'll also be able to set up some of the optional methods below:

  • Approving your login attempt from a device we recognize.
  • Using one of your recovery codes.
    • Go to Settings > Security and Login.
      • Under the Two-Factor Authentication section, click Use two-factor authentication. You may need to re-enter your password.
      • Next to Recovery Codes, click Setup then Get Codes. If you've already set up recovery codes, you can click Show Codes.
      • You can print or write down the 10 codes that appear. You'll only be able to use each code once. If you run out of codes or lose them, you can request new ones by clicking get new codes.

Other Useful Resources and Tips

  • If you haven't saved the computer or mobile device you're using, you'll be asked to do so when you turn on two-factor authentication. This way you won't have to enter a security code when you log in again. Don't click Save this browser if you're using a public computer that other people can access (example: a library computer).
  • We need to be able to remember your computer and browser information so we can recognize it the next time you log in. Some browser features block this. If you've turned on private browsing or set up your browser to clear your history every time it closes, you might have to enter a code every time you log in. Learn more.
  • Text message (SMS) security codes used for two-factor authentication are always 6 digits long.
  • If you're not receiving your text message (SMS) login codes, you may have turned off text messages from Facebook. Learn how to turn text messages (SMS) back on.
  • If you want to turn off text message (SMS) codes and use a different security method for two-factor authentication instead, you'll need to have have a third-party authentication app turned on to do this.
  • You can disable text message (SMS) security codes by clicking Remove number next to the mobile phone number you want to stop using. If you don't have a third-party authentication app turned on, removing your mobile phone number will also turn off two-factor authentication.
  • You can turn back on text message (SMS) codes for a mobile phone by clicking Use two-factor authenticationText Message. Click on the mobile phone number you want to start using again and follow the on-screen instructions.
