Secure Your Account
Facebook accounts may be targeted to gain access to sensitive information. Take these simple steps to help protect your information and presence on Facebook.
Enable Two-Factor Authentication
Take the Security Checkup
Facebook’s Security Checkup will help you log out of unused apps and browsers, manage your alerts, and strengthen your password.
Update your information
Review the contact information on your account, remove old email addresses and phone numbers you no longer use, and add current accounts you regularly monitor.
Control who you share with
Facebook’s Privacy Checkup helps you review who can see your posts and info from your profile, like your phone number and email address. It also shows you your settings for apps you’ve logged into with Facebook.
Secure all devices & platforms
Take advantage of security features offered on your mobile phone (like codes, PINs, and strong passwords), email accounts (eg., two-factor authentication), and other social and online platforms.
