Facebook has tried to show us how important it is to understand the ways to stay secure on its platform by rolling out checkups or even trying to prevent hacking incidents from happening. However, it’s not yet clear if everyone fully understands how they can stay safe and secure on the social network.
That’s why Facebook launched a new guide, How to Keep Your Account Secure, which expands its Privacy Basics guide and aims to explain what you can do with Facebook‘s security settings and what’s the damage control process should you suspect your account has been compromised.

The updated security guide is the result of feedback collection regarding Facebook’s Privacy Basics dedicated resource, accumulated in a period of 4 months. It covers specific topics like how to create a better password, what to do if you see a suspicious post or message, what to do if your account has been taken over by someone else and much more information.
It also comes in 40 languages and it can be accessed from your phone, desktop, or tablet. Its structure is based on 11 visual guides which will guide you through everything you need to know in order to be safe and keep your information secure on Facebook.
