Is the Government Spying on You? Facebook Will Let you Know!
Recently we have read about Governments spying on people through phone taps and Social media monitoring – like in Uganda’s case where a spying law was passed a couple of months ago. On the same account Facebook accounts are notorious for being hacked, either through poor passwords or phishing scams. So to help keep its users safe, the social network has announced that it will soon start sending banner notifications to anyone whose account may have been compromised by the government or if Facebook suspects someone is trying to hack into it.
The security of people’s accounts is paramount at Facebook, which is why we constantly monitor for potentially malicious activity and offer many options to proactively secure your account. Starting today, we will notify you if we believe your account has been targeted or compromised by an attacker suspected of working on behalf of a nation-state.
Facebook also clarifies that these notifications do not mean the site as a whole has been compromised.
