There is a rumor circulating that states that you can try if the accountYour Facebook account is safe by simply typing a “BFF” in the comments of the social network.
Unfortunately, such alchemy will not make your accounts more secure, and they will not let you know if they are.
A post "security” currently circulating is the following:
Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, coined the word BFF. To make sure your Facebook account is secure, type BFF in a comment. If it appears green, your account is protected. If it does not appear green, change your password immediately, as it may be hacked.
or in English
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, invented the word BFF. To make sure your account is safe on Facebook, type BFF in a comment. If it appears green, your account is protected. If it does not appear in green, change your password immediately because it will be hacked.
If you do not use Facebook often, you may not know about a small UI feature that has been released in recent months. Basically, if you type in a specific phrase - such as "congratulations" or "happy birthday" in a Facebook post or comment, Facebook will add color to the text.
Thus, according to the above "security" post, if a comment or post contains the term "BFF" (BFF stands for "Best Friends Forever"), a "secure" account will display the text green. (Obviously, an account that is "at risk" will not display any color.)
Of course it hoax αν και ακίνδυνο έχει προκαλέσει συναγερμούς στους αδαείς που θέλουν να προστατέψουν τον εαυτό τους αλλά και τους φίλους τους, αναδημοσιεύοντας το κείμενο “ασφαλείας” που προέρχεται κατευθείαν από τον Mark Zuckerberg (he did not have another job.)
So to make it clear, the publication does not apply. So if you see the text in front of you resist the desire to publish it for your friends to see, because you do more harm than good.
On the contrary, you can encourage them to control them new security settings of their account.
