So someone has to enter their name, password, wait for a text, then put in the code, then delete the text... just to login?
Um no. How about everyone hold facebook accountable for these things instead of the users having to jump through extra hoops to use the
service. The company saves money not spending it on more security tech, so the users are pretty much working for the company for free
because they are spending their personal time doing extra things on behalf of the company.
If you use two factor authencation on facebook they will use your number for advertising. Shortly after i setup two factor auth i started getting scam calls and tons of telemarketing calls on my new cellphone. DO NOT USE 2FA ON FACEBOOK OR THEY WILL USE IT TO SPAM YOU WITH ADS. I had to purchase a call blocker. This makes me very angry they do that even if they number is private on facebook they still sell it to others. (JUST QUIT FACEBOOK ITS NOT WORTH IT)
Dumped Fakebook years ago. It's a cesspool. When I did have it, I never gave it one bit of accurate information about myself. I do understand that for many people around the world Facebook is a lifeline to family and friends, and for them it is just fine. Big problem with it is that many of those millions of fans believe stuff they see on Facebook.
I fully agree with both the sentiment and the advice of this video, so congrats on another great one!
However, I have to point out a major caveat: although the importance of security and privacy settings cannot be stated enough, this time, the breach happened due to a vulnerability in the access token of the "view as" feature. In other words, even a strong password and healthy security habits won't make a difference in this instance. It's just a security flaw in a feature that is built into the platform itself.
Great Video! I was thinking, how sad it is that we have to go through these steps for security. Please do this. I know it is a pain to do this but we live in a cruel world and some people want to destroy us!
Steve... do your followers even use FB for things other than business?
FB IS A JOKE which gives the hoi polloi something to do. I see your followers as thinking people with above average intelligence and full lives. I think the title of Sherry Turkle's book illustrates very well what most of FB is about, Alone Together.
I am also beginning to wonder if it is even a good platform for advertising any longer when you can advertise on the blogs of Influencers and other way more targeted places online.
What sensitive information is on Facebook tho? I mean seriously, selfies, memes, and pictures of our kids that's what we're worried about losing our privacy about. It just doesn't seem like a big issue, tbh.
I don't use Facebook or any other social media fad. From the beginning I always felt that was something would come back to bite people in buttocks, big time. Time after time I've been proven right. Facebook on folks, it's your funeral.
Zoran Djokovic My Instagram account is not linked to a Facebook account,so I believe that there should be a firewall. But this is Facebook we’re dealing with ... just a matter of time before they completely ruin Instagram.
Thank you Steve, not just for this video but the other ones that are in use because of you, no account has the same password, each account that allows me to has 2FA, and thank you in advance LastPass for how easy you make it for me to change all of my passwords. Steve your education has me smiling today and at a zero stress level.
Thanks for this video Steve
When I hard this about Face book I was really upset .

We need to make the world better place not the other way a round.
Thanks for this great tip .
Be cautious if you travel using two factors authentication with your cell phone. When I went from North America to Europe I changed my sim. When you change your sim you loose the ability to receive text message from the service you are trying to use.
Steve, Thank You for this informative video, as always. I closed my facebook account and i have removed it from my android phone. Im feeling better already. Too many variables happening at Facebook, that's why i decided to steer clear from it all together.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.
The Flipside Is Being Ignored.
Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
