With Privacy being the most gnawing issue when it comes to Facebook, so much that users are actually using Google on How to Delete their Accounts the social network has released new features for security. The new feature might just be the beginning of a lot more to follow. I can bet that Facebook wouldn’t have done much had the governments not taken the issue very seriously as well, one reason why it also hired Tim Muris, the former FTC chairman.

The feature is live for all and you can access it simply by following the steps below:

  • Go to account and click Account Settings

  • From there scroll to Account Security and select Yes and submit.

The update is simply a step forward towards a more secure Facebook experience for users. Opting in for this option, users will be notified via email or SMS if their Facebook account is accessed from a compute or mobile device that you haven’t used before. This would only be good enough for keeping a check on random login. This is quite like what Gmail does though its checks are not down to the devices.

Honestly speaking that would only resolve a very minor issue and wont help satisfy the disgruntled users who appear to have had enough with this cat and mouse game. Especially after reading that Mark Zuckerberg thinks we are Dumb F*cks.

Update: Once you have selected the option and log out. Facebook will ask you to register the machine/computer or mobile device to authenticate it for future access. In case you delete your cookies you will have to re-register the computer to enable access to your Facebook Account. Ridiculously tiring.
