Your Facebook is an electronic version of yourself. A lot of information you add there is personal and you would certainly not want an unauthorized person to access them. However the susceptibility of someone hijacking your Facebook account increases when you are a frequent user of Facebook mobile. This means you need to eradicate every bit of way through which your Facebook account can be accessed by a user other then you from your mobile.

Here are a few important security rules that you need to ensure to have a safe and sound Facebook Mobile experience.

1) Keep You Phone Locked

Almost every mobile phone that there is, offers a mobile lock feature. No, not that keypad lock, but the one that usually requires a security code or pattern to unlock. So as to prevent your phone from unauthorized access, make sure that your phone is always locked when not in use.

Research shows that 30% of the people don’t use this feature. Although it is of vital importance, locking your phone does not only protect Facebook, but also you phones contents like messages, contacts, etc. and you can’t simply compromise on security of such contents. So, lock your phones and stop complaining!

2) Use The Secure Browsing Feature On Facebook

The secure browsing feature was launched on Facebook in 2011. Under the secure browsing (the HTTPS browsing), the content you send and receive is in an encrypted form and hence not crack able. Otherwise, hackers can extract packets of data that you receive, over a Wi-Fi connection, and can get your personal information from that. This is also known as Sidejacking.

3) Don’t Use Facebook Mobile Apps, rather prefer Facebook on browser

The Facebook apps out there don’t effectively offer you the secure browsing experience. This may lead you to be a victim of sidejacking. Instead of Facebook Apps, use Facebook on your phone’s internet browser as it would allow the secure connection.

4) Don't Use The Same Password Everywhere

A lot of people have a habit of using the same password for multiple services like Yahoo, Facebook, etc. This, by no means, is a good practice. Someone who has your Yahoo password can easily get to your Facebook if you used that Yahoo account on it. Using different passwords solves this issue.

5) Enable Login Notifications and Approvals

If you don’t want unauthorized people to try and access your Facebook, then login approvals is a good option. Whenever you try to access Facebook from an unknown device, Facebook sends you a text message on your phone that contains a security code and you need that code to log in to your account.

This is a very useful feature launched by Facebook as it wouldn’t allow people, who even somehow got your password, to access your account. But again, without proper security on your mobile phone, this feature is of no use.


Use Trusted Contacts Feature

Facebook recently introduced this Trusted Contacts Feature. It basically allows you to select a small group of your friends. In case if you lose your password and had no luck with the security questions, Facebook sends different codes to these Trusted Contacts of yours that you specified.

Using those different codes, you can easily get your account back. However, choosing the Trusted Contacts might be challenging as you need to be very careful here since they can get access to your account too by means but hey, don’t be that paranoid.
