Facebook has updated as Meta, but the infamous social media forum still has the same issues faced by users due to data privacy, misinformation, etc.
If you are one of the users who faced the same old issues then it’s about time to pay a visit to the privacy settings option of Facebook.
Always use a strong password and two-factor authentication process
The most important thing to do is to secure your Facebook account is to generate a strong password and permit two-factor authentication. Also, recheck to make sure you’re not using the same password for critical accounts like your banking app.
Once you have generated a new password, turn on two-factor authentication. With the 2FA permitted, every time you sign in you’ll need to enter l need to enter a generated code.
Limit Information to friends or only me
Go through each and every option on the privacy settings and tools page of Facebook and amend each option.
The setting of your future posts should be set to “Friends” and limiting the personal information to “Friends” or “Only Me” to guarantee that anybody with just a little piece of your personal info can’t find your account or misuse it.
Removal of past posts from public
The use of social networks has changed, particularly as we know how Facebook, and people on Facebook, can use our personal information.
The past posts can be limited from being visible to anyone who might trip across your profile.
Go to the Privacy section and find limit the audience for posts you’ve shared with friends of friends or the Public. Next, enable the button Limit Last Posts.
Different device access to your account
Facebook keeps a history of the devices that have entrance to your account and makes it easy to annul the admittance to a device or one you forgot to log out of.
You can check a list of devices Where You’re Logged In the segment of the Security and Login page.
Click on See More to view the complete list. In order to remove a device from the list, click on the three-dot icon to the right of the device’s name and then Log Out.
Facebook will then ask whether or not you want all posts from that device to be removed from your account as well.
On the other hand, sign out of every device connected to your account by clicking See More > Log Out Of All Sessions at the bottom of the list.
