Do this and your FACEBOOK account won't be lost to HACKERS

It is now a prevalent that most people lose their Facebook account to hackers these days .Their ways of doing this is not so hard but people still fall to their evil act. One notable ways you ought to look out for is what I will disclose here.

They could guess your phone number or lift it through Whatsapp groups, when they log in to Facebook with your phone number, they will click on forgot password and request a reset code. Once this code is sent, they will call you up to help forward the OTP(one time password) that was sent to you.

Once this code is sent, chances are that you have lost your account since most times they will change all your log-in details.

To avoid this learn to set Second Level Verification on your account. One good app for this is Google Authenticator which can be downloaded from Playstore.

To set the Second Level Verification, login to your Facebook and go-to SETTINGS, scroll down and click on Security and login, then scroll down and click on Two Factor Authentication ,then Select Authentication App. It will display a unique code, copy the code, then click next it will ask you for code from the Authenticator.

Log into the Google Authenticator app, click on the ➕ Plus sign in the authenticator and select Enter set-up key, a new page will display ,then put Account name and Facebook, then paste the set-up key in the key dialogue box and select Time Base then click save. It will display a 6 digit number, copy and paste the number in Facebook . When you're done, it will display successful.

With this ,before any one will access your account, they will need the code from the Authenticator to gain access.
