Use Strong Passwords

Password of Facebook account should have enough characters that it becomes hard to guess. Also use combination of small and capital letters. You can include some symbols,numbers in your password so that it becomes impossible to figure out your password.

Make Primary Email ID secure

The email id that you have registered on to Facebook as primary mail must be secured. If someone hacks that primary email he can gain access to your Facebook account. So make sure that the email account is properly secured.

Register a mobile number

In case your Facebook ID gets hacked, you can recover your account using the mobile number reset code. And also don't handover your mobile to strangers.

Make your PC virus Free

You can use good antivirus to ensure that your pc is virus, Trojan and malware FREE. As this bad programs can send your Facebook and other credentials to the Hacker and your account can be compromised.

Enable security Features given by Facebook

Go to gear icon (upper-right side)->account settings -> Security
  • Enable secure browsing, as it will browse on HTTPS instead of only HTTP. HTTPS is secured connection and protocol used by banks and other important online services.
  • Enable loin notifications. Using this you can get notified on mobile whenever a person logs into your Facebook account using a unknown device. So for this first you have to have mobile no registered

Active session and recognized devices

Active sessions are those sessions which are still logged in your Facebook account. So if you forgot to log out of Facebook, you remain logged into that pc, so anyone can access your account. So you can remove active session to protect your account. Also remove unwanted recognized devices.

Enable Trusted contact Feature

Trusted contact feature helps you to recover hacked Facebook account using your trusted friends.

      and ya.. thats the reason why it is called TRUSTED friends. Trust only those who will not do prank.. and in trusted contacts we have to add atleast 3 friends. So 3 friends will provide separated codes using which we can recover hacked account. So better choose the friends whom u can trust.
