With over 500 million active users it’s no walk in the park when there’s a complaint about login error or accout hacking. So now Facebook is encouraging users to fill up a number of information to secure their Facebook account. Basically there are three levels of security: low, medium and high. To reach a High account control level, you will need to complete all information listed:
- Include and confirm a second email address
- Include and confirm a mobile number
- Prepare a security question only you know the answer
To add a second email address
By adding your second email, you have extra protection if ever running into problem with your Facebook account. You can add multiple email addresses if like as long they are valid. A verification code will be sent to you to add your new email addresses.
To add a mobile number
Adding a mobile number is step 2 of the security process. If you have not sign up for Facebook mobile, you can learn how to do so from How To Activate Facebook Mobile Device For Facebook Updates.
To add a security question
A security question is selected so only you know the answer. Be sure to remember exactly what is it because no changes can be made. No settings, no options, nada. You can still see which question you’ve selected here, that’s the best you can do.
