It was announced on Friday, September 28th that Facebook experienced privacy issues that affected over 50 million accounts.

If your account was compromised, you would have already been logged out automatically by Facebook and asked to log in again.

Even if you weren’t affected, it’s wise to take precautionary steps to keep your account secure.

Follow the steps below to reset your Facebook account and reauthenticate it in your SinglePlatform account.
