Using facebook is very simple, but how to use it safely, without worrying about losing your account … not everyone knows. So this article I will share with you some experience using Facebook safely, without worrying about being hacked or disabled accounts.
Through the instructions to recover facebook password, how to open a facebook account is disabled … I realize that there are many people who do not know how to use facebook safely. Many people often lose their accounts due to being disabled, hacked by others….
Losing a Facebook account is common with the following two cases:
1.Hacking: That is, being illegally accessed by others. Then change the registration information including password, phone number or gmail ….
2.Disabled: Ie the account is disabled by facebook. Could be suspected that you use fake information or use more than 1 account, account violating community standards ….
Usually the loss of your Facebook nick can be caused by you or by a bad guy. In any case, if you know how to protect it, you will never lose your account. If lost, it will also be easy to reopen immediately.
Right now, I will share with you all the experiences of using Facebook safely. If you do it my way, make sure 99% of your facebook account will be safe.
Experience using safe facebook
1.Use your official phone number or email to create a facebook account
There are many people who use junk sims or other people’s phone numbers to create facebook accounts. When I forgot my password, I asked Heaven and Earth because I could not recover my password and could not log into Facebook.
Or sometimes remember the password, but because the account has some problem. Facebook requires phone or email verification to be able to login … If you no longer own a phone number or registered email, it will be considered losing your nick.
So the first thing you need to keep in mind is to use your phone number or official email to register for a facebook account. If you have used the phone number or email that is no longer yours or you no longer use it, immediately change it with the phone number or email you are using.
To change your phone number, go to Settings → Mobile. To change your email, go to Settings → General (or on your phone, go to Settings → Personal information).
2.Use your full name and date of birth (match the information on your ID)
Many people use facebook or use strange nicknames, which are not true. This is really unsafe, so if the account is not okay then it is okay. But if it is disabled, requires identity verification … it will be very difficult.
Many people have their accounts disabled for various reasons. But generally to reopen you will have to send photo ID to verify your identity. If the information of full name, date of birth, address, avatar photo … on your facebook account must match the information on the identity card to be able to reopen.
So you should use all information (full name, date of birth, …) exactly, matching identification will never worry about disabling your account to verify your identity.
Perhaps many of you think, I did nothing wrong, will not be disabled account, not required to verify your identity, …. completely wrong. Facebook can disable your account at any time. Sometimes the cause is not from you, such as someone pretending to create a facebook account, then now facebook will see that there are 2 similar accounts. They will lock both to request identity verification. The account that sends the correct identification will be opened. So if you do not have an identity document matching the registration information, it will not be possible to reopen that facebook account, even if it is your main nick.
3.Set up 2-layer security
2-layer Facebook security is a way to protect your account from the risk of hijacking your account.
Once you have turned on the 2-layer security feature for your Facebook account. Then when you or someone log into your account on a new device or at a new IP address, facebook will send a verification code via sms to your phone number, enter the correct verification code then can continue login So if others want to log into your facebook account with their device, it will not be possible. Even if they know your email, phone number and password,…. unless they get your sim.
4.Never click on suspicious links
Hitting the curiosity and curiosity of many, many hackers create many types of fake websites in order to usurp the facebook accounts of inexperienced users. They will share fake information such as: Pornographic videos, winning cars … on Facebook, when accessing, they require users to enter to view the content.
If not noticed, users will think that they are logged into facebook. But actually it is providing information for the bad guys. If you fill in your login information immediately they will hijack your account immediately.
Or fake fake websites. Please fill out the form to receive the award. But it is all about providing information to them, letting them use it for malicious purposes such as spamming others, stealing personal information or reselling it to third parties.
Or in some cases, when you click on the link that contains the virus. Maybe the bad guy didn’t completely hijack your account. But the virus will be installed on your account, make your account automatically post, send messages to all friends to advertise fraudulent loading cards, prizes, …
So when you see shared posts, containing suspicious links, absolutely do not click to see, if you have clicked, then never follow what they ask.
5.Do not install applications that exploit personal information
Currently, there are a number of applications and games that can exploit users’ personal information, such as: Fortune telling, portraits, physiognomy, guessing the age …
You absolutely do not use applications of this type, if you have accidentally installed it, please remove it all. Because these applications are very dangerous, may collect your personal information. What they use it for, no one knows, may be to account or account for many malicious purposes. Bottom line is definitely not safe.
6.Do not use auto like, auto sub sites
Currently, there are many websites created to auto like, auto follow, auto share … to be used you need to use your facebook login information to log into the system of these websites.
At that time, your facebook account will be used by these websites to automatically like, share, comment on Facebook posts and many other malicious purposes, just like your account is under attack.
Or more seriously, your account may be completely hijacked by them at any time.
So never use such sites, if you need to increase likes, follow followers, etc., increase according to the most natural, such as always posting useful content, giving gifts, creating mini games…. to attract likes, share and follow ….
7.Hide personal information
Many hackers hijack accounts by exploiting personal information such as email, phone numbers, friend lists, birthdays, etc. .
Just go to About → Basic and Contact to edit the privacy mode for contact information and date of birth.
8.Don’t make friends with many strangers
If you make friends with many strangers, sometimes there is a risk, such as making friends with bad guys and then they try to exploit your personal information to hijack your account.
Or there are some bad guys who can harm you by making friends with you, then adding you as an administrator of a certain fanpage and then posting content that violates community policy. Facebook will lock down the fanpage and the accounts of the site administrators (including you).
Another very common case is the request to verify the identity by identifying friends. If you make friends with many strangers, it will be very difficult to solve in this case.
Therefore, do not make friends with strangers, just make friends with people you know, not necessarily to be familiar but to recognize who they are.
9.Do not post content that violates community policies
If you post content that violates Facebook’s community policy, you will be banned from posting for a long time and seriously, terminate your Facebook account.
Therefore, avoid downloading content that violates community policies such as nudity or other pornographic content; hate speech, threat may occur or directly attack an individual or group; content that contains excessive violence or self-harm; fake or impersonated personal pages; spam ….
10.Remember to log out if someone else’s computer is logged in
Sometimes you do not bring your phone, you borrow your phone or computer friends to log into facebook, after using it again forgot to log out. This is really insecure, lightweight, and may block private messages and information.
Or if they fall into the wrong hands, they can use it to post bad content, even you could lose your account.
Sometimes it can be friends, they don’t mean to hurt you. But inadvertently they can click on malicious links, their machines are infected with viruses….
So, if you use another person’s computer to log in, log out as soon as you are finished using it. If you are using a computer, you should log in to your browser anonymously.
Above are some experiences of using a full facebook account that I want to share with you. If you do all the things I mentioned above, you will never have to worry about losing your account again.
