Never share your login information

  1. Scammers may create fake websites that look like Facebook and ask you to log in with your email and password.
  2. Always check the website’s URL before you enter your login information. When in doubt, type www.facebook.com into your browser to get to Facebook.
  3. Don’t forward emails from Meta to other people, as they may have sensitive information about your account.
  4. Learn more about avoiding phishing.

Don’t accept friend requests from strangers

  1. Scammers may create fake accounts to friend people.
  2. Becoming friends with scammers might allow them to spam your timeline, tag you in posts and send you malicious messages.

Watch out for malicious software

  1. Malicious software can cause damage to a computer, server or computer network.
  2. Learn the signs of an infected computer or device and how to remove malicious software.
  3. Keep your web browser up to date and remove suspicious applications or browser add-ons.

Never click suspicious links, even if they appear to come from a friend or a company you know.

  1. This includes links on Facebook (e.g. on posts) or in emails.
  2. If you see a suspicious link on Facebook, report it.
  3. You can also get alerts about unrecognised logins and set up two-factor authentication.
