Hacked on Facebook? Here are steps what you can do

            Hi facebook lovers!!! i have surfed a lot about facebook hacking and what should one do when the facebook account is hacked. This post is mostly for the crazy's on facebook. A lot of time we come across posts made by friends that say their Facebook accounts are hacked. Such posts follow the earlier posts with pornographic videos or photos etc from the accounts of the same people. 



But this doesn't mean that the account was hacked. You need to start by understanding what happened.

The cause of your hacked account:

You  may feel Facebook doesn't have a strong user privacy protection in place. But reality is that Facebook is not to be blamed for those posts.The real culprit in this game are all those apps on Facebook which apparently tell you "when will you die".Not all but some of these apps are very poorly protected to begin with, and it is just a matter of time before an app goes rogue and starts spamming your timeline with those pornographic videos.

What can you do?

When you find yourself at the receiving end, first of all, you need to change your Facebook account password. It is a rare chance that these apps may use your account details to steal your data, but the possibility is always there.Don't we wish everything was as easy as just changing a password? Sigh, it is not. However, you can follow the following steps, which is next to easy. A panel on the left side on your Facebook newsfeed page will show you some of the Facebook apps. You can open the complete list of these apps by clicking on "More".



                                  

Each app will offer you three options: Add to favorite, Edit, and Remove.
Now you need to identify the app that is spreading all kind of filth on your timeline and click "Remove".


What about unwanted tags?

You can also change the tag settings so the your name doesn't appear without your permission.


Here is how to do it:

  • Go to "Settings" from the arrow on top right corner.
  •  Select "Timeline and tagging" from the panel on the left of the page.
  • Enable the "Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your timeline?". After enabling this, Facebook will send you a notification every time someone tags you in a photo or a post.
There are also other options on this menu that you can find useful.Dont worry if u get HACKED!!!! just do these steps.Be free from Hackers .....
