  • Here is another internet safety tip from Kim Komando. Facebook has added another layer of security to keep your account from be hacked. I know we don't like to copy too much from other sites but rather than link you, I put the blurb here in quotations.

    "The security measure turns on encrypted communication with Facebook. This makes your Facebook sessions almost impossible to snoop. However, it needs to be activated manually.

    Log in to your Facebook profile. Go to Account>>Account Settings. Scroll down until you see Account Security and click the Show link.

    There will be a Secure Browsing section. Click where is says "Browse Facebook on a secure connection." Then click Save and resume using Facebook."

  • I will modify my statement a bit. The e-mail I was sent the security notice is not one that anything is registered to with Microsoft.

    None of my software is registered to this e-mail address, so there is no reason any of my software companies should contact me with it.
