How to prevent hacking of your facebook account

There is a SIMPLE way to be sure your facebook account isn't hacked - and things you do in advance in case you are ...

Goto your Settings & Privacy and set a few things:

1) Put in 3 friends who can get reset links if you can't get into your account

2) Set up 2-factor authentication - if a logon is attempted from an unknown device a special code will need to be entered. On my android phone I use an app called AUTHY to do this (I use same app for my bank logons and fb)

ALTERNATIVE to #2 - cell phone text message authentication, but, this disables ability to use cell-text to recover a lost password - AND - I don't give my cell # to FB, so I use the AUTHY app and it's easy
