Security tips

1. Know how to spot a scam

If an offer looks too good to be true, it probably is. Think twice before you click on a link for free airline tickets or other common scams.

2. Choose a one-of-a-kind password

Is your Facebook password different than your email password? If not, please reset your password today.

3. Confirm your mobile number

If you forget your password, we'll be able to text you a new one. To make sure we can reach you, confirm your mobile number.
