Today, Facebook has announced a new feature called Trusted Contacts. Using this feature, you will be able to give people you trust a security code should you ever lock yourself out of your account. You will then be asked for these codes when you do get locked out to verify that it’s actually you who’s logging in.
First of all, I know that it’s not going to happen but you have to be prepared should the worst happen to you.
The second thing that I have noticed is that you have to be really careful with who you choose as your trusted contacts. The reason I say this is because Facebook say that you have to “Choose people you trust, like friends you’d give a spare key to your house.” It’s all well and good having this system in place, but like all other security systems, a hacker will be able to use this to gain access to someone’s facebook account.
