So……..your having problems with logging into Facebook! We all at some point have issues with Facebook but having trouble logging into Facebook has to be the most annoying and stressful out the lot. We are here to give you some tips and advice on logging in successfully.
First rule of thumb is to always make sure that you have a virus checker installed on your laptop, tablet or mobile phone ( yes even mobile are susceptible to virus attacks). There are certain virus’s that can alter your passwords and various other things so having an up to date virus protection program will make sure you are protected against this.
2. E-mail protection
Make sure that your E-mail account is protected. Using Outlook (used to be Hotmail) is the safest way to go as they offer e-mail security. Otherwise most online protection protection programs have settings to protect your e-mails. NEVER CLICK FACEBOOK LINKS IN E-MAILS. There are some e-mails that pretend to be Facebook and look like the official e-mails too but if you click them then your likely to be rediected to a fake page ( see check the URL below). Once here you will enter your facebook details and effectively give your details to a hacker. BE aware!
3.Check the URL
Make sure that you are logging into Facebook at http://www.facebook.com. This is very important as there are certain sites out there that will look and feel like the official Facebook page…..it’s only until close inspection that you will notice it says something like http://facebook.hackme.com. Although it says facebook in the URL it is actually whats called a ‘sub domain’ and although it looks like facebook in the url its actually an add on to the hackme.com site. Please always check your URL.
A quick but obvious one really but we feel it needs to be mentioned non the less. Always make sure your firewall is switched on.
5. Give out your details?
A big no no is to give out your personal details. Some sites offer help to login to your Facebook account and to do that they ask for your details…..when people are desperate to login they will willingly give out their details. Sounds silly reading it now maybe but this is a very silly thing to do. Unless its through Facebook’s help centre, never give out your details to anyone.
6. Facebook changes
One thing that never changes is the fact Facebook feel like they always feel they need to constantly change the layout of Facebook and so the look may change and you might not see where to log in. Don’t fret just keep a watchful eye out and you will surely see the log in button somewhere…….pesky Facebook
7. Ask for help
