Want to keep your Facebook account safe from hackers? A little-known feature on Facebook will help you stay on top of your Facebook account and everyone who’s accessing it. The feature provides you with notifications every time a person accesses it from a new computer. You can receive both email and SMS notifications about the access. It’s a feature that Facebook doesn’t heavily broadcast, but it’s useful. Here’s how to secure your account in 5 seconds.

Step 1

Log in to Facebook and simply click on the “Account” drop-down in the top right corner of the site. Then click on “Account Settings” as pictured in the image below.

Step 2

After you are in your account settings, simply click on the “change” link directly next to “Account Security” toward the bottom of the page (as shown in the image below). From there you will be able to turn on notifications for each login that takes place from a new device.

You’re Done!

That’s it! You will now receive notifications every time someone logs in to your account from a new computer. Thanks a million to Mari Smith who pointed out this feature on here Facebook wall.
