So you thought using the word ‘password’ as your Facebook password was a great idea when you signed up in 2008 but now, not so much.
After all, someone could log on and destroy your whole social image before your eyes, the same image the your friends have been slowly chipping away at by tagging you in post-pub pictures.
Thanks guys, but nonetheless your security is of utmost importance and so you must know how to protect your identity.
If you are already logged into Facebook and you want to reset your password, all you have to do is click in the top right corner of any Facebook page where you will see the little arrow and click settings.
You will land on your general setting page, so you need to scroll to security and login.
You will see a login section and beside change your password you need to click edit.
The you will be instructed to put in your current password, and then the new password.
Then all you have to do is hit save.
If you are looking to change your password because you have forgotten your old one, then click ‘forgotten account’ under the password section when you try to log in.
You then put in your email address or telephone, you will then be sent a security code that you need to enter to your email or phone.
Then you need to enter the security code and you will be allowed to reset your password.
You can then choose if you want to log out of all other devices – which is a good idea – or stay logged in.
