New Facebook Security Feature

If you are reading this, you know I am a huge cheerleader for educating yourself about your privacy settings - no matter what the social media platform. Well, Facebook has added a new security feature. It's not a 'privacy' feature, so you do not see the blue privacy alert box on the top of your account.

So, what do you need to do? Protect yourself and follow these simple steps:

1. Log into your Facebook account.

2. On the right hand side, click on Account and choose Account Settings.

3. Scroll down to Account Security and click on the Change link.

4. Check the box. This box ensures that you browse Facebook on a secure connection whenever possible, thus giving you another layer of privacy protection. Please remember to click Save.

Jake, from the Facebook Integrity Team, posted a handy video on YouTube that walks you through this process as well as gives you some additional valuable information. Check it out.
