Set Up 2-Step Verification

Set up 2-step verification on your personal Facebook account.

Hackers are getting much smarter. Two-step verification will confirm your identity before someone is allowed to log in to your account and change contact information, access levels, and spending advertising dollars.

Once you receive the message 'Your access has been removed.' it is too late.

I have heard of 3 stories in the last few days where a business has lost access to its Facebook page because the owner did not have 2-step verification set up on their personal account. 

Even if the other people on your account DO have it set up but you do not, it can still happen. It comes down to the weakest link who has administrative status.

How to set up 2-step verification.


In your personal Facebook account, tap on Menu.

  1. Scroll to the bottom and tap Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap Security and Login.
  3. Scroll down and tap Use two-factor authentication. You may be asked to enter your password at this point.
  4. Tap Use Authentication App or Use Text Message (SMS).

Don't Wait! If anyone has Admin Access

to your business page, make them set up 2-step verification today, or reduce their permissions to an editor.

Here is what the hackers are doing.

  1. Hack into an unsecured Facebook account.
  2. Grant themselves Admin access to your business and ad accounts.
  3. Change the email and phone on file.
  4. Remove the original owner's access.

And it happens FAST 💨.

Do you need more information? Facebook

does have an extensive Help section. Here is the link to the article on the Authentication process.
