Will you Know if Your FB Account is Hacked by Typing‘BFF’

Will typing ‘BFF’ on Facebook let you know if your account is hacked?

In the past few days, a post has been going viral on Facebook which states that CEO Mark Zuckerberg has introduced a new security system which will help users identify if their account has been hacked.

However, this post is a complete hoax. It should be noted that Facebook does have a feature called Text Delight which automatically animates green and red hands giving a high five when published. And, it also animates when you click on it. But, this does not imply that your Facebook account can be hacked or is secure. On the contrary, Text Delight has other text animations as well, such as Best Wishes, Congratulations, You Got This and many more.

A report by TechNave points out that there is some grain of truth to it as Text Delight may not work if you haven’t updated your Facebook app or Internet browser, so you would be less secure and easier to hack than those who have updated.

Many Facebook users flocked to the social media platform and commented the word, ‘BFF’ in the comments section and turned out relived after the word turned ‘green’. So, spread the word and let your friends know that this is purely fake news.

Recently, Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg broke his silence on the data scandal rocking the social media giant, apologizing for a “major breach of trust” with its two billion users and vowing to not repeat the mistake.

In his first public comments on the uproar over the harvesting of data on 50 million users by a British firm linked to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, Zuckerberg told Facebook users the firm had “a responsibility to protect your data.”

He added that if it didn’t, “we don’t deserve you.” He promised that Facebook will investigate every application that has accessed large amounts of data at the leading social network, and do full forensic audits if anything looks suspicious. “This was a major breach of trust and I’m really sorry that this happened,” Zuckerberg said.

“Our responsibility now is to make sure this doesn’t happen again.” Zuckerberg’s comments come after several days during which Facebook shares were pummeled and calls for investigations were launched on both sides of the Atlantic. Writing on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg said “the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago.”

“But we also made mistakes, there’s more to do, and we need to step up and do it.” It has emerged that British consulting firm Cambridge Analytica obtained data on millions of people from an app developed by researcher Aleksandr Kogan, which was downloaded by thousands of Facebook users but also scooped up information from their friends.

“This was a breach of trust between Kogan, Cambridge Analytica and Facebook,” Zuckerberg wrote.”But it was also a breach of trust between Facebook and the people who share their data with us and expect us to protect it.” “We need to fix that.”
