Enable Login Notification

It will use your phone number to add an extra layer of security to prevent other people from logging into your account. You can enable it from Account Setting ---> Security and Login---> Setting up Extra Security --> Use Two-factor Authentication ---> Text Messages. A code will be sent to your registered mobile number when you or any other person will try to log in your account. So you will have to enter this unique code and your password to get access to your account.

Two-factor Authentication

Enabling this will help you to protect your account when someone tries to access your account. You can enable it from Account Setting ---> Security and Login---> Setting up Extra Security --> Get Alerts about Unrecognized Logins.  When someone login to your account you will get a notification on Facebook via text message and email. Facebook will let you know if anyone logs in from a device or browser you don't usually use.

Choose Trusted Contacts

Always add 3 to 5 trusted contacts on your profile. These trusted contacts will send you a code and URL from Facebook to help you to recover your account. Only add people you know in your real life.

Enable Authorized Logins

Trusted browser is very helpful. You can review your authorized browsers at any time. It is advised to remove old logins.

Remove all Apps you don't Trust

Most hackers use some apps to access your account. If you have any unknown app then owner of that app has access to your account. So it's better to remove all unknown apps now and never accept any 3rd party apps on Facebook. You can see a list of apps, whom you have given permission to access your Facebook data, by visiting the "Apps" tab under "Settings". Delete all unwanted apps.

Never share your Facebook Email and Password with Anyone

Never ever share your Facebook email address and password with anyone, even with your friends. Just hide it from everyone. You should be the only one who knows it.

Never click on Spam Links in Inbox

This is the most important tip for you all. Never click on any link if someone sends you via email or messenger. He/she will say you to click and get thousands of followers, get thousands of likes Blah Blah!!!. Never trust them. They all are a scam. If you click then they will get your all info through that link and this process is called phishing. Never enter your Facebook email and password anywhere else Facebook. Also, don't enter your id and password on spam links.

Never use Auto Likes or Auto Comments Websites

If you are using any auto likes or auto comments website than leave it now and remove their app from your Facebook account. Because they all have access to your account every time. They can change everything of your account any time.
