Your email can be used to find others in the same 'network' as your email domain, such as a corporate workplace or a school, college or university.
Be careful here. You can use many emails to access your Facebook profile, but these can automatically appear on your profile.
1. If you wish to disconnect from a network, you can remove your email address here, too. Simply hit Remove.
2. If you wish to remove your Facebook email, then you can do. This allows anyone outside of Facebook to contact you on the site.
Also, ensure that the box is not ticked to prevent others from downloading your email address if they decide to export their data from Facebook.
Linked accounts can be used to synchronise your social networks, and to allow Facebook to log in when you are using another account or social network.
1. In my view, Linked accounts should never be used, because if one account is compromised, then the hacker could also compromise your Facebook. It's better to keep these as separate as possible, to ensure that your services remain secure.
Where you should be: Account settings > Security tab.

Secure browsing allows you to browse Facebook in a 'secure' way. Though it may not protect you from snooping in the workplace, it does enhance your security when using the site -- to ensure that your data cannot be intercepted or viewed when it travels through the wires of the Internet.
1. You should enable this feature by ticking the box.
But remember, your privacy and profile settings are more important than secure browsing -- as this setting does not lock down the content you post on Facebook.
