Facebook launches a New Security Feature called ‘Trusted Friends’

Facebook has come up with another interesting feature that helps you get to your Facebook account in case if you forget your password. The novel feature is named ‘Trusted Friends’ that lets you log back by allowing you to take help from your friends on Facebook. The process starts with your choosing trusted five friends from security settings page. You can arrange the settings in such way so that if you log out and later forget your password those friends will get a code. “You’ll only need 3 codes to get back into your account, but we recommend picking 5 trusted friends so you have back-up. Your trusted friends should be people you can easily call and who are likely to respond to you quickly.” Facebook said in its help center. Facebook presents it as “giving a house key to your friends when you go on vacation” and has apparently taken the initiative in honor of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. It has also introduced app-specific passwords to help you when you log into third-party apps through your Facebook account.
