Trusted Contacts From Facebook - Social Media

What do you think you should do if one day you are unable to log-into your Facebook Account!!? Naturally you will try a lot. Then what? Ok, you may click on 'Forgotten your password?'. Via this mechanism you will receive the Re-Set Password Link in your EMail id. This could be the EMail id that you normally use to log-into Facebook / which you have registered with your Facebook Account.

Now, what if you are unable to get into your EMail Account since you may have not used this in a long time?

There is another way in which Facebook chooses to help. This is called 'Trusted Contacts'. This is a simple mechanism. This is added Security Feature from Facebook. 

'Trusted Contacts' are those chosen persons you can reach out to if you ever need help getting into your Facebook account. This is like a rescue system. For example: if you forget your Facebook password and can’t get into your email account to reset it.

If you like this system then this is what you should do:
  • Go to your Security Settings in your Facebook Account
  • Then click on the 'Trusted Contacts' section
  • Here you are to click Choose 'Trusted Contacts'
  • Choose 3 to 5 friends and confirm your choices

Not to worry: You can edit this list later.

Your turn, will you use this ?
