Do you think your Facebook account has been hacked? Perhaps you notice “likes” you didn’t make, new groups you’re suddenly a member of, or new Facebook apps you didn’t install? If you still have access to your account , here are some steps you can take to fix it. The first step is to change your password. You can do so in your General Settings page. Ensure that your password includes lowercase letters, uppercase letters, and at least one number. You should also add a special character like a question mark or exclamation point. Make sure your new password is at least eight characters long, and avoid dictionary words. Click on the arrow at the top right and select “Settings” from the drop-down menu that appears. From here, you can access a handy tool in the Facebook Security page that allows you to see which devices are logged into your account. Click “Where You’re Logged In.” If you see an unfamiliar device listed there, click “End Activity” to end the session originating from that device. Keep in mind that this tool doesn’t always provide an accurate depiction of who is currently logged into your account, and clicking “End Activity” alone won’t protect your account as the hacker will be able to login again.

You’ll find this option on the Security page under “Login Alerts.” With this feature enabled, Facebook will alert you when a new device is used to log into your account.

To do this, browse to your Facebook Settings page and select “Apps” from the left navigation bar. When you hover over any app that is listed, two icons will appear: a pencil to edit the app permissions, and an “X” icon to remove the app. Use the “X” icon to remove the app. Do you use your Facebook password on other websites? If so, you should change your passwords on those websites immediately. Attackers often reuse passwords to gain access to more of the victim’s accounts. If your Facebook password was changed and you can’t get into your account, try recovering your password. Make sure you have access to your email address, as you’ll need it in order to recover your Facebook account. Perhaps now more than ever, it’s crucial to take a hands-on approach regarding the security of your personal data. Never reuse the same password across multiple online accounts.
