Receive An Alert If Your Facebook Account Gets Hacked

Are you concerned that someone may have gained unauthorised access to your Facebook account? Or perhaps you are worried that such a scenario may unfold in the future?

If so, you will want a system in place to alert you of any unauthorised activity surrounding your account. And thats where Facebook’s security settings comes in.

Facebook-alert

If you look at the image above you’ll see a selection of security settings. Choose the second one down – Login Notifications.

Click on Edit to switch this notification from disabled to enabled. Doing so will mean that should someone access your account from an unknown browser or device then you will receive an alert via either email, text or push alert – just check the box to define which and then click on Save Changes.
