4 Tips for better security on Facebook

 

1. Turn your secure Browsing ON

I used to see many Applications on Facebook asking you to disable the secure browsing. and only after disabling secure browsing  they will work. But I recommend you not to use such application. Even if you use that turn your secure browsing ON after that. You might wonder why i am suggesting you this..! Well let me explain you in detail…
There are some tools in hacking which can steal your cookies, if once someone is successful in getting your cookie, then they can log in into your Facebook account without any usage of USERNAME and PASSWORD…!This is possible in all Local area networks and in WiFi connections.

So if you enable secure browsing, it will let you to browse in HTTPS instead of HTTP, so that your data will be encrypted and you can save your account from getting hacked
