You Might Want To Reset Your Facebook Password……Today

Facebook’s parent company, Meta, has announced that hundreds of malicious apps have been discovered by its researchers. Among the apps that were found were photo editors, which made up a whopping 42.6% of cases, as well as VPNs, flashlight apps, 3D games, fitness trackers, horoscopes, and business or ad management apps. These apps have tricked more than 250,000 users into downloading it to their devices. While you don’t need to worry about any of these apps going forward because both Google and Apple have scrubbed their marketplaces of the apps since the announcement, you will still need to delete them from your iPhone or Android. Many apps offer Facebook as the login method. Technology experts warn that you should use caution when electing to use your Facebook login to access other sites. If an app doesn’t work without providing your Facebook credentials, consider deleting it from your phone. Legitimate apps don’t force you to connect to Facebook to use it. To be extra careful, consider enabling two-factor authentication. With this option enabled, you’ll need to provide your password and a second method of security, normally a security key sent to you via text message to ensure you are who you say you are.
