Beside just guiding you on how to login to Facebook Login Home Page, we will also show you several common causes of why people’s FB account got hacked and how you can avoid them.
The Correct Facebook Login Home Page
Always double check that your current Facebook Homepage has the correct URL – www.facebook.com. This is a very simple task you should check on before giving your private credentials not only on Facebook but on all the other websites. With the current devastating population on the internet, threats are becoming more persistent and stealthy.
There are a lot of scam, virus or fake sites designed to look exactly like the Facebook Login homepage trying to make you believe that they are real so that you will proceed to login on their fake facebook login form. If you have accidentally login on any of these fishy sites, it will of course not log you into your facebook account but redirect you to somewhere else, maybe some ads heavy pages. These site will then use your login details to login to your account and do whatever they want.
It is very easy to spot these fake sites. Just check on your URL address and see if they are something else different from www.facebook.com such as, for example, www.fafacebook.com or faacebook.com. This may seems to unimportant but people still constantly fall into this trap becomes a victim of losing all his facebook photo, posting disturbing materials on your behalf, and other things-you-may-not-want-to-happen in your Facebook account.
Never Stay Signed In on a Public Computer
As many of you may know, stay signed in is a feature that allows you to skip the login process the next time you visit Facebook again. This is a very common feature that available in all kind of websites and web apps that requires a login. Stay signed in, in short, will save a cookie on your browser to tell your browser to save the session so that you don’t have to repeat the Facebook sign in process next time you visit facebook.com even after you have closed your internet browser (Chrome, Firefox or IE) or even shut down your computer.
While this can be an awesome option, but it should be used only if you are using your very own computer that no one else can use. If you are logging into your Facebook account with the stayed sign in checked on a public computer such as those in an airport or internet cafe, the next person who visit facebook.com will be directly logged into your account. So, never tick stay signed in on a public computer and always remember to sign out after you’ve done using it.
