What can I do to keep my account Facebook secure?
1.Think before you click. Never click suspicious links
even if they come from a friend or a company you know. This includes links sent on Facebook (ex: in a chat or post) and links sent in emails. If one of your friends clicks on spam by accident, that link might be sent to all of their Facebook friends. Remember to never re-enter your Facebook password or download something (ex: a .exe file) if you aren’t sure what it is. Learn more about recognizing suspicious links and suspicious emails.
2.If you don’t know what it is, don’t paste it into your internet address bar
Pasting unfamiliar text into your address bar could result in events and pages being created from your account or other spammy actions.
3.Pick a unique, strong password
Use combinations of at least six letters, numbers and punctuation marks; don’t use words that can be found in the dictionary. When in doubt, change your password. You can reset your password here or by going to your Account Settings page, located in the Account drop down menu at the top of every Facebook page.
4.Never give out your username or password
Never share your login credentials (ex: email address and password) for any reason. Individuals, pages or groups that ask for your login information in exchange for discounted goods (ex: free poker chips) shouldn’t be trusted. These types of deals are carried out by cybercriminals and are in violation of Facebook’s Payment Terms.
5.Log in at www.facebook.com
Sometimes scammers will set up a fake page to look like a Facebook login page, hoping to get you to enter your email address and password. Make sure you check the page's URL (web address) before you enter your login information. When in doubt, you can always type "facebook.com" into your browser to get back to the real Facebook site.
6.Update your browser
Current versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer have built in security protection, like warning you if you navigate to a suspected phishing site. Facebook supports:

1.What is a malicious script scam?
In a malicious script scam you are asked to copy and paste text into your browser’s address bar in order to see something interesting or surprising (ex: who viewed your profile/timeline).This "code" is actually a malicious script. Instead of showing you what was advertised, it uses your account to create events and pages and send your friends spam.
2.My friend’s account is sending spammy links or creating spammy events and pages
It’s possible that your friend unknowingly pasted a malicious script into their address bar. Instead of showing you what it advertises (ex: who viewed your profile/timeline), these scripts create events and pages from your account or send your friends spammy links. Tell your friend to close their internet window or log out of Facebook to end the attack and secure their account.If your friend did not paste text into their browser, it's possible that malicious software was downloaded to their computer or that their login information was phished. Tell your friend to visit the Phishing and malware section of our Help Center to secure his or her account.
3. Click jacking
Certain malicious websites contain code that can make your browser take action without your knowledge or consent. Clicking on a link on one of these websites might cause the website to be posted to your Facebook profile, for example. Don't click on strange links, even if they're from friends, and notify the person if you see something suspicious.
Koobface is a computer worm that targets Facebook and other social networking websites. It spreads on Facebook by sending messages and making wall posts on behalf of the infected user. These messages contain a link, which will prompt you to download and install a newer version of Adobe Flash player. However, this download actually contains a malicious file that, once opened, uses your Facebook account to continue posting this malicious link on your behalf, thus spreading the virus. Right now, only Windows users can be infected by Koobface.

5.Spammy Wall Posts, Inbox Messages, and Chat Messages
When criminals gain access to a Facebook account, they usually post spammy comments on friends’ Walls, or send spammy messages through Inbox or Chat. These messages ask you to click on a link and often try to entice you by claiming there’s a new photo or video of you somewhere on the Internet that you need to check out. The link then takes you to a phishing site that asks you to enter your login information, or a malware site that prompts you to download malicious software.Don’t click on strange links in posts or messages, even if they’re from friends. If it seems weird for an old friend to write on your Wall or send you a message, it’s possible that the person’s account has been taken over by a spammer. Be particularly cautious of posts or messages that contain misspellings or use bad grammar.
6.Spammy Groups and Pages
Spammers sometimes create groups and Pages that claim you'll win a prize or gain access to special Facebook or application features if you first invite all of your friends. These groups and Pages may even ask you to copy code into your browser address bar to automatically send invitations or
suggestions.Be wary of groups and Pages with offers that seem too good to be true, especially if they ask you to provide personal information on another site or spam your friends with invites in order to qualify.If you come across a group or Page that you think is a scam, report it to us by clicking on the report link in the bottom left of the page.
7.Money Transfer Scams
Scammers sometimes post status updates, or send Inbox or Chat messages, from a friend’s account claiming that the friend is in some difficult situation and in need of money. These messages ask you to help by wiring funds through a money transfer service.Never send money without first verifying the story through some other means, such as by talking to the person over the phone. If a friend’s account has been taken over, contact us so that we can block access. If you've sent money, report it to the money transfer service, and, if you’re in the United States, the Federal Trade Commission or the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
8.Fake Notification Emails
Spammers and scammers sometimes send phony emails that have been made to look like they’re from Facebook or another reputable website. These emails can be very convincing, and the “From:” field can even be spoofed to include “Facebook” or “The Facebook Team.”If an email looks strange, don’t click on any of the links in it, and delete it from your inbox immediately. Be especially wary of emails that ask you to update your account, tell you to open an attachment, or warn you to take some other urgent action.
9.Chain Letters and Messages from Phony Facebook Employees
You might occasionally see a status update or message making some claim about Facebook and urging you to take an action. Examples include:
Facebook is becoming overpopulated.Facebook is going to start charging money.Certain users have special access to profile information.Facebook is selling your data.Sometimes, these come from people claiming to be Facebook employees who then ask you to provide your password or other personal information.If a status update or message doesn’t look right, don’t believe it. Disregard it, and tell your friends that it’s phony. If someone pretending to be a Facebook employee asks you for your password, don’t give it out, and report the person immediately by clicking the report link either on the message or the person's profile.
Facebook has strict policies for developers to help make sure that applications don’t misuse your data. While most applications play by the rules, you may occasionally come across one that doesn’t quite look right.Use caution when interacting with applications. If you think an application is violating our policies, report it to us through the link on the application’s About page. You may also want to block the application by clicking the “Block” link on its About page.
WHAT TO DO
Facebook has systems to detect the rare cases when an account is taken over and used to send spam. When this happens, we shut off access to the account. The next time you visit Facebook, we ask you to complete a few steps to re-secure the account.
If your account has been taken over and used to send spam, you should follow these steps immediately:
Reset your Facebook password. You can do this by clicking the "Forgot your password?" link on the login page or by going to the Account Settings page once logged in.
If you can’t reset your password because the email address you use to log in has changed, or if your account has been disabled, visit our help page.
Make sure you have up-to-date security software on your computer, run a scan, and remove any malicious files. If you don’t do this, and your computer is infected, your account may be taken over again. If you don’t yet have protection for your computer, you can download a complimentary six-month subscription of McAfee security software.
If a friend’s account has been taken over and used to send spam, you should follow these steps immediately:
Tell your friend to check out this Page and follow the steps above.
Warn those who received the spam not to click on it, and to delete it from their Walls and Inboxes.
1.Don’t click on links or open attachments in suspicious emails. If the email looks weird, don’t trust it, and delete it from your inbox immediately.
2.Be wary of where you enter your password. Just because a page on the Internet looks like Facebook or another site you use, it doesn’t mean that it is. Check the address bar in your browser, and learn to tell the difference between a good URL and a bad one. If you ever have doubts about the legitimacy of a link, simply type the website’s URL (for example, http://www.facebook.com) into the address bar.
Be suspicious of any email or message that contains an urgent request or asks you to update your information or provide new information.
Be suspicious of emails or messages that contain misspellings or use bad grammar, especially if they’re from someone who is usually a good writer.
3.Make sure you have an up-to-date web browser equipped with an anti-phishing blacklist. Some examples are Internet Explorer 8.0 and Firefox 3.0.10.
4.Make sure you have up-to-date comprehensive security software on your computer that includes anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-phishing, and a firewall.
5.Make sure you've set your operating system to update automatically.
6.Make sure you’ve listed a security question and answer for your online accounts. This will come in handy if you ever lose access and need to prove who you are. You can do this on Facebook from the Account Settings page. You should also add a mobile phone number from this page, which will help if we ever need to send you a text message to confirm your identity.
7.Don’t share your passwords with anyone. Don’t do it. Most reputable online services will never ask for your password through any form of communication.
8.Use different passwords for your various online accounts. If you use the same password everywhere, and it’s stolen, you could lose access to all of your accounts at once.
Use a complex password that can’t be easily guessed. Avoid common words, and make sure your password is at least eight characters long and includes capital and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.
Remember that you choose what you share and with whom you share it. Think before you post, especially if the information is sensitive or personal in nature. You can learn more about how to control your information on Facebook, including how to choose an audience for each and every post you make, in our Privacy Guide.
Use caution when accessing or sending information over an unsecured public wireless network. Unless you can verify that a Wi-Fi network is secure, you may want to avoid transmitting sensitive information.
