So we’ll walk you through on how to ensure your account is safe from hackers in today’s post and the important steps you need to take to retrieve your Fb account from hackers.
How to protect your hacked Facebook account
I worked on three hacked accounts from a little research I did, and I was able to recover only one and the success of the hacked account recovery was based on the following
1. Link your email address with your account
- You need to connect your FB account to your personal e-mail account to repel hacker’s attacks on your Facebook account, and secure an e-mail password that only you really have to remember.
- Login to Facebook from a browser to connect your Facebook account to your email.
- Type your login information and scroll down to the setup and privacy at the base of the interface, then just press it.
- Click the Personal Information Setting button on the next screen to edit your data.
- To be able to apply any changes made, enter your password effortlessly and press the continue button becasue you will be asked to provide your password.
You will see your information on the next page and you will see that the E-mail section is blank, just add your e-mail address. Just save those settings and your email will receive a confirmation message.
To access the confirmation email, login to your email on a new tab. Check your inbox for a message from Facebook, click on the message, and grab the code.
When the confirmation code is needed, paste the code from the email into Facebook.
This will warn you of login attempts as a hacker attempts to access your FB account in future.
Furthermore, if your account has been compromised by accident, you can easily log into your Facebook and reset your password and create another password.
2. Add your personal phone number
You can also add your phone number in addition to your email as this will also assist when your email is compromised with Facebook as we have seen cases at which Facebook account and the email are both hacked. You may want to consider adding your phone number to improve your chance of retrieving your account from the hacker.
Use the same method as the one for the email to add your phone number to where you edit the blank email, but you will also have to enter your phone number there.
If your account gets compromised, you can also be saved by your phone number.
3. Stop signing up on Facebook profile websites
When you carelessly sign up on websites, there are plenty of compromised accounts risk attached. So other ways of signing up is advised, particularly on sites you don’t trust, this will save you from bad situations.
Fraudsters and hackers will conveniently use them to hack you when you sign up for your Facebook profile, your private details will be saved on that website’s database. In specific, earning applications that pay you to do certain stuff. Around 45% of compromised accounts have been hacked in this way.
4. Keep the Password safe
Use a code that can be impossible to know, such as Tom88qQe@!, to be discreet. It can be hard for someone who peeps at you when typing it to guess or even understand at a glance.
However, you will need to use a password that you will still recall.
Avoid using a password that your mates can guess, such as your name or birth date. I’ve seen cases where people use a password which include their name and date of birth and if you have clever people who try to hack you, you’re gone.
If all this is unknown to you, and you have already fallen victim and you have landed on this page to recover your identity, then follow the below to withdraw your account from bad people.
