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.
Recognised devices are laptops and smartphones from which you have logged in from. You can select the name when you log in for the first time on that device.
1. If you see a device you have not named, or do not recognise, hit Remove and it will log you out from that device.
