There are Two Ways to Secure Your Facebook Account from Being hacked
 
 

Secure your Facebook Account using Trusted contacts

     The first method to secure your facebook account from being hacked is through trusted contacts.  Trusted contacts is a service provided by Facebook to help users retrieve their account incase it is hacked.

 

If you activate your trusted contacts, even if someone hack your account and change every details there, you will still be able to retrieve it back. Trusted contacts is an avenue where you are at liberty to add up to five of your trusted friends on your Facebook account.

When you add these trusted friend, anytime your account is hacked, you simply tell them to generate code from their Facebook for you. You need to enter those codes on your account retrieval page to be able to have access to the account again.

Do not add someone whose account is not protected to your trusted contacts because if the account of that person is hacked along the line, you won’t be able to get the code from him/her and if the 3 codes are not complete, Facebook won’t retrieve your account for you.

 

Incase any their accounts is hacked along the line, quickly replace the person on your trusted contacts list.
