Have you ever been a victim of facebook hacked account before? if you haven't, you will never know how it hurt to lose your personal account of so many years to a cybercriminal.

One thing about these hackers is that they don’t hack for fun but mostly to get back at you. Either to blackmail you, steal your facebook page/group or to defraud others with your account. No matter what their aim might be one thing is for sure they don’t have our interest at heart and they will hurt us at the end.

Choose 3-5 friends to contact

You need to set up 3-5 trusted friends on your facebook account. Their contact will serve as your witness in case your account is Hacked facebook will send codes to this 3 trusted contact on their account and they will help you to login if you are logged out.

Set up the get alert about unrecognized login.

This setting will alert you anytime your account is login without your knowledge or in a new device so that you can take action immediately before the hacker deletes your account details on your profile like recovery email and phone number.

Change password.

If you don’t have a strong password it will be in your best interest to change your password now. I know generating a strong password will be difficult to remember so the best alternative is to install a password manager on your phone.
I recommend LastPass.
