How to prevent Facebook hack

A Sturgeon Bay IT professional shares ways you may have never thought of how hackers can get at your Facebook account. Nathan Drager is the owner of Quantum PC in Sturgeon Bay and he says you can do some simple things to help protect your accounts. Last month Facebook had a data breach that affected 90 million users. People that had their accounts breached would sign in to Facebook, then get immediately logged out, and then sign back in again. If something like that happens again, Drager says you should change your password right away and add two-factor authentication. Drager explains what that is.

 

 

That way you would need your password and your device on you at the same time. Drager added you should not accept friend requests from people that you don't know. He says beware of clicking on articles where you don't recognize the source. Another thing to be careful of are quizzes where they may seem to ask innocent questions. 

 

 

Drager says to make sure all the passwords you use are unique so that if a hacker gets one password, they can't get all your passwords. Facebook can be slow to react to account security issues since there are over 2 billion users.
