How to set up two-factor authentication for your Facebook account

Most Popular
Your Facebook account is a rich target for cyber criminals. You certainly don’t want a random hacker posting in your name if they manage to take over your account, which also contains personal information – your date of birth, your phone number and more – that you wouldn’t want exposed, and could help attackers crack your other accounts.  
Securing your account with a strong password – potentially generated by using a password manager – that you don’t use for any other accounts is the first step towards keeping your Facebook account secure.  
But by adding two-factor authentication (2FA) – also known as multi-factor authentication – you can add another layer of security to your account to help keep intruders out, even if they’ve managed to get hold of your password

When your account is secured with two-factor authentication, the attacker usually needs physical access to the device you use to secure your account. That’s a much bigger hurdle for them to jump than just getting hold of your password.
Plus, when you have two-factor authentication set up, you’ll get an alert whenever there’s an attempt to access your account. 
An unexpected notification can indicate that your password has been compromised, but your account will still be protected. 
And it’s likely that cyber criminals will give up because attempting to breach the 2FA of your Facebook account probably isn’t worth the time or effort involved. 
Here’s how to set up two-factor authentication for your Facebook account.
