WARNING: Change this New Facebook Privacy Setting ASAP! (VIDEO)

Account Security on Facebook is Super Important!

Account Security on Facebook is Super Important!

Ok this is SUPER IMPORTANT! Thanks to an article in Gawker that I just read we will all know how to do it. Basically it’s called Facebook HTTPS and it enables a more secured way to browse Facebook when you are on an unprotected wireless network. Here’s a line from the article that really caught my attention:

“One blogger sitting in a random New York Starbucks was able to steal 20-40 Facebook identities in half an hour.”

This is obviously a MUST so be sure to make this change in your privacy settings ASAP. Facebook is still rolling out the feature so if it’s not in your account yet it will be in a few days.

Here are the steps…

- STEP #1: Go To This link: https://www.facebook.com/editaccount.php

- STEP #2: click ‘Account Security’

- STEP #3: Click the box for “Secure Browsing (HTTPS)”

- STEP #4: Feel more safe in the world:)

Here’s a Youtube video that Facebook created which outlines the new security features:

Don’t you wish Facebook would just make it easier for everyone to protect themselves!? I feel so bad for everyone who doesn’t know about these settings. Facebook should make it easier for everyone to know what to do. In the meantime, I’ll try my best to let you all know!
