By : Mr. Yenuka Shachintha - Information Security Engineer 

Many people using  Facebook represented their personal, social and professional images online to a variety of friends, family, and even colleagues. Keeping up a high level of security on such an open platform must be paramount for every user.

Mr. Yenuka Shachintha mentioned as at December 2018 approximately  6 million people are using Facebook in Sri Lanka and day by day complaints and problems are arising. Therefore he talked about  that  how to use the extra security features provided by Facebook. 

He also spoke about two factor authentication which allows you to protect the Facebook account from hackers.

He also explained how to use help Centre  options and how to keep your account safe by way using secure browsing. Since 2011, Facebook has allowed its users to browse its social network via a HTTP secure connection. Put simply, a HTTP secure connection is achieved whenever the URL begins with https:// instead of http://.
