Number of Facebook users have been increasing at a high rate. People from all over the world are using Facebook for both spending their leisure as well as to run promotion of their business or small online business. Hence, Facebook is very important for us. Surprisingly, sometimes our Facebook might be more important for somebody else.
Surprised yet? Yes, you heard me right. A recent analysis shows that most of us face hacking and the hacker is no other than someone we know. People often get their ID compromised often by husband/wife, romantic partner or close friends. It makes sense, as hacker might only want to know your online activity just like someone you know would.
So, you think there is a hacking tool or a way to hack Facebook account? Well, it’s almost impossible unless you are tricked. Well, let me tell you a small story. A year back, my best friend came by to my place with his laptop. He asked me to log in and next thing I know is I am hacked. It’s that easy for a known person to do so. How was I compromised? Well, use something named “keylogger” and I had no idea. If you don’t know “keylogging” keeps track of everything you type hence it was a piece of cake for my friend to get the password. So you know how easy it is for someone you know to hack your account. So what would you do?
There are several strong security steps provided by Facebook to avoid hacking and to get your account compromised. Also there are tools in the market that can ensure your account’s safety. The Security Key from Yubico or Feitian is one of those tools. It’s a small USB like device that works just like the key to your house, if you don’t have the key, you will not get in. The Security Key works out of the box to your accounts on Facebook, Google, Dropbox, GitHub and to other supported social media accounts. All you need to do is to press a button to login. As a result, nobody can enter your account even after knowing the password, as your account will go through a two-step verification process with the Security Key.
Even after all those impossible to hack security system by Facebook, account might be hacked by someone close to you. In that case, having a device in your hand which will only allow you to access your accounts, can be the safest way. Wondering, how will be able to login to your account when you are not having your desktop or laptop? Well, you can use YubiKey the same way, to login to your account using your smartphone.
