Back in February, Facebook introduced an optional security setting that allows you to surf Facebook more securely: by SSL / HTTPS. Having a connection with HTTPS in the browser versus HTTP helps protect your password as it moves from your computer to the website’s server you’re accessing.
This is just a reminder that if you haven’t already changed your settings to protect yourself, do so now.
How to change your setting:
While on Facebook, look at your URL address in the browser. If you see “http:” instead of “https:” you DO NOT have a secure session. It’s easy to change. Just go to Account (upper right) click Account Settings.. Then Account Security – click Change. Check box (secure browsing), click Save.
