Alright, let’s not forget that we are on a series of Facebook security where in this chapter, I will just quickly show you how to enable HTTPS/SSL on your Facebook. If you still have not enable this feature, then you are on the right post.
I had not written any post on HTTPS specifically but I had mentioned that the importance on why you should enable HTTPS back in my post Twitter is on HTTPS. Here are the steps to do it.
1. Login into your Facebook account and at your top right, click on the tiny arrow button which is pointing down and click on Account Settings.
2. At the new page, click on Security on your left and open the Secure Browsing option. Enable the option to bring your HTTPS feature to you Facebook and don’t forget to save your changes.
3. You can logout from your Facebook now and try to login again. Now you should be able to see the HTTPS feature at your web address in green usually for a legitimate and active SSL certificate.
Although you are now on HTTPS, I would like to remind again that it is not any super security feature where it can make you feel invisible against all threats. It is just to protect your transmitting data to the Facebook server. Worse still, there are proven research that there is a toolkit known as BEAST which can possibly break the HTTPS mode.
Oh yah, we were busy talking about Facebook security but did we forget that we are getting closer to Novermber the 5th? It is the day where Anonymous is going to take down Facebook. If Facebook is not able to see the sunrise two days later, there isn’t any use to protect your Facebook account anymore.
