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.
Using a 'two-factor' system, Facebook can send you a text message or an email when you are logging in from a location or computer it does not recognise. This is wise, as it allows you to verify that nobody else is trying to access your account.
1. Recommended setting is text message, if you want to enable this feature.
