Facebook secretly introduced logging onto the the site using the relatively safer https connection but strangely did not sensitize users enough about it. HTTPS encrypts and decrypts user page requests as well as the pages that are returned by the Web server. The use of HTTPS protects against eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks. To change your Facebook account to use the HTTPS connection,
- Go to Account
- Click on account settings
- Under the Settings tab, click on Account Security
- Check the radio button by “Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible”
From here you can also choose to be alerted whenever a login takes place in your account through SMS or email. If you’ve not done so yet, do so now! Change to HTTPS secure connection.
