Use of Facebook with Google Authenticator: more security




Already last year I reported here about the possibility of two-stage hedge Facebook . Here, in addition to the password security code is required to be sent to a mobile device. This operation you need to perform only once in your equipment.


The reason for using this security option should be clear: no one can log into your account, even if he had your password. A year ago there was not the ability to generate the code via Authenticator app, yet it was only the version of the code by SMS or via a code that was displayed within the Facebook app in the code generator.


If you have this security feature enabled, but you can also easily use the Google Authenticator, because maybe one wishes all the codes in one place.

Security_settings Already equipped with double safety “old style”, the procedure is simple. You go into the security settings of Facebook and studied there, the code generator on. Here you select that you want a different way to get the security code.

Clicking on this point, then you get a QR code you can scan with the Google Authenticator app. This, generated via the app code, you must henceforth always in addition to equipment also enter your password where you are not waiting authenticated.

As an alternative to the Google Authenticator app on iOS I recommend HDE OTP . I find it interesting the way comments that comparable contributions to the double security at Google, Dropbox , Microsoft, Evernote was submitted and co. Here is always argued that the creation and use is too complicated, so you just do not use the security options offered. Personally, I find the cost is not high and the improved safety, it is simply worth it.
