Facebook has recently announced on their official blog site its new system designed to protect and secure users account from any sort of suspicious activity. They have tighten their account security system to the extent that log-ins using any non registered devices or computers by its user will be ask for account verification process. Users will be alerted and will be ask for some verification question such as date of birth or to identify a friend in a picture.
Just a while ago when I log-in to my account, I was prompted to enter my computer name. The system is now progressing and working.
Here’s how to activate the new account security system:
1. To activate the new account security settings, users may first need to register their mobile numbers on their Facebook accounts if they haven’t done so before. Just simply go to Account Settings then click on Mobile tab. Then supply the correct mobile carrier.
2. Once you’ve able to add and verified your mobile numbers, you’ll then have to go to Facebook Account Security then click on the link Change. Right there you’ll be able to set notification method through SMS text as seen on this illustration.
Just click the Submit button to save your changes. That’s it.
Any future suspicious log-ins will go through a series of verification steps before account will be restored. So for all the Facebook account login hackers out there, they would probably have a hard time accessing unauthorized log-in to any users account who’ve set the new security system.
Here’s what it looks like for account verification steps whenever there’s any suspicious log-ins occurs.
