Update Your Facebook Password Fast
By Dave Taylor
The Question: I think I’ve been hacked! How do I go into my Facebook account and quick change my password?
The first thing to do if you are worried that you’ve been hacked and someone’s broken into your Facebook account is to log out every other device that’s currently logged in to your account. This will, of course, affect your smartphone, your work computer, any Apple TV units or other systems that might be hooked into Facebook and even your smartwatch if you have a Samsung Gear S, Moto 360, Apple Watch or similar.
It’s all worth it, however, because if you’re right, every minute you leave things as-is offers another minute that a potential bad guy could be posting as you, monkeying with your settings or trying to change your password or security questions.
