What to Do If Your Facebook Gets Hacked

If your Facebook account gets hacked, it’s important to act quickly to secure your account and protect your personal information. Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Change your password immediately. Choose a strong password that you’ve never used before.
  2. Log out of all active sessions. This will force the hacker out of your account.
  3. Enable two-factor authentication. This will add an extra layer of security to your account.
  4. Review your privacy settings. Make sure that your settings are set to private so that only your friends can see your information.
  5. Scan your computer for malware. The hacker may have installed malware on your computer that could give them access to your other accounts.
  6. Report the hack to Facebook. This will help them to track down the hacker and prevent other people from being hacked.
