How to Enable Two Factor Authentication On Facebook (Laptop/PC Guide)

 How to Enable Two Factor Authentication On Facebook (Laptop/PC Guide)

Back in February this year, Facebook owned WhatsApp and introduced 2-step verification for all its users which added an extra layer of security to their accounts. A month later, Instagram, which is also owned by Facebook, rolled out two factor authentication for its users too. Well, this is definitely a welcome move as to prevent unauthorized people from accessing users’ accounts. 

With these two factor authentication, users are now required to enter an additional security code along with their password whenever they try login to their accounts. This security code is sent through SMS or email to the users, and they can only log into their accounts when they successfully enter that code correctly along with their password. This reduces the risk of hacking of their Facebook accounts.

Now, while WhatsApp and Instagram have already deployed these mechanisms, enabling this for your Facebook account was quite difficult until now. Facebook didn’t list this feature as two factor authentication; rather, it was listed as “Login Approvals” which made several people scratch their heads. However, in an attempt to simplify things up for the users and to help them better secure their accounts, Facebook now redesigned their security settings and list the two factor authentication in their settings. To observe you can login into your facebook account to verify and, if you don’t know how to enable two factor authentication on Facebook, read on as we show you how it is done in step below.
