If you’re like me, your eyes probably glaze over the minute anyone starts using tech speak—but if you’re computer savvy enough to be reading this blog, then I’m guessing you’re on Facebook too. And if you’re on FB, you should definitely read on.
Just over a week ago, Facebook announced that it’s rolling out a new security feature that is designed protect your account from being compromised by hackers. (It works by enabling HTTPS encryption throughout every move you make on the site.) It’s great if you often log in from public places like your library or coffee shop—but to get the benefits, you have enable it yourself. Here’s how:
- Go to Account Settings
- Select Account Security (third item from the bottom).
- Check the box under “Secure Browsing (https)“
- Hit the blue Save button below.
That’s it. You’re finished!
Note: If you don’t yet see this option, don’t panic—Facebook is rolling it out to users over the next couple of weeks, so check back again in a few days. It should show up soon.
