There seems to be a new trend in which companies are actually actively taking actions that are in response to their customer complaints. Similar to Netflix rescinding from separating their streaming content from their dvd products, now Facebook is now coming out with a way to address hacked accounts. I’m sure you have either experienced or know someone who has gone through being hacked. Some unauthorized individual finds a way to get into your account, potentially unleashing havoc to you and your reputation.
Leads me to wonder what has taken so long.for Facebook to finally address this problem. Could it possibly be because it has been released that nearly 600,000 logins are compromised daily. There is already in place an added security (click here to find out) but very few people utilize it. To counter, Facebook will soon release a more “social” way to protect yourself called “Trusted Friends” in which you can choose 3 friends in which codes will be sent to in case you can not enter your account. Why not just have one sent to your email? Well most likely Facebook feels if your account is hacked then your email as well has been compromised. While I am glad Facebook is finally taking steps to finally addressing this issue, but what happens if the person that hacked account changes or even deletes your “Trusted Friends” list?
Facebook is also to implement App specific passwords so that your Facebook password won’t be a one for all used to logon to Facebook associated Apps. This may be a tad irksome but its much safer than the possibility of the alternative. These functions are still in the testing stage and as soon as they have been solidified we will show you in our How To blogs.
