Facebook adds new security tools


news.smh.com.au

Facebook has added new security tools to prevent hacking amid a growing storm over privacy at the social network.

The new security features, unveiled on Thursday, include giving members the ability to approve which devices they commonly use to log on to Facebook - a home computer or a mobile phone, for example - through an "Account Settings" page.

"Once you've done this, whenever someone logs in to your account from a device not on this list, we'll ask the person to name the device," Facebook software engineer Lev Popov said in a blog post.

Facebook is getting more and more 'secure', isn't that right?

It's my only link to many of my friends, past and present.

It's only a matter of time before some hacker can be able to circumvent the system's security features and hack into your Facebook page and freely view it.

Wow. Unbelievable.

Do you have Facebook pages of your own, and if you do have one, do you appreciate the social networking site's security upgrades?

Another grand security measure by Facebook, and they can determine what PC you use...

...it's another form of passive espionage.

I saw this story earlier. I have logged in/out of my Facebook several times...I'm not getting the new security question thing. I think the article should read: "Facebook is going to add security tools", because so far as I can tell, none have been implemented yet.
