Facebook - How to set up Two-Factor Authentication to keep your account safe

If you have received one of those messages this week from a friend saying something like this...
"Hi....I actually got another friend request from you which I ignored so you may want to check your account.    Hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward and all the people you want to forward too....PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT A NEW friendship FROM ME AT THIS TIME" 

it reminded me it is a good idea to make sure you have Two-Factor Authentication set up. To set it up:

  • select the triangle next to the help icon (upper right) 
  • Security and Login
  • Two-factor Authentication
    • Once activated they will send a security code if they notice a login from an unusual device

Embedded below is a GIF followed by a 1 minute and 2 second YouTube tutorial.





Take care,
