We all log into Facebook through our phones, laptops, or friends’ laptops. Sometimes we can forget where we have been logged into. Lucky for us, you can check all the places that you are currently logged into. Facebook provides all of this data, and this feature is very easy to find.
Once upon a time, Messenger was just what it sounds like, a messenger-like email. This service has been bulked up a bit. This give you the ability to make phone calls, hold video chats, send money and other things. One of the newest abilities is that you can send Word docs, PDFs, photos, and even short videos by Messenger. You can also now use Dropbox to send files. Amazing!
Download the Dropbox and Messenger apps on your mobile device.
Here’s how it works:
Many important messages can go to your request folder and be unseen. If someone is trying to reach you that isn’t your friend yet, they can be sent to this little hidden folder. It can take months, weeks, and even years for you to see this secret little compartment.
If you haven’t checked this little folder, you should take a look to see if you have any messages awaiting you. To find this secret folder, go to Messenger >> Settings >> Message Requests >> See Filtered Requests. This will reveal those messages that have been hidden from you.
These scenarios are becoming more and more common as we grow older. A friend or loved one passes away and everyone is sad about the loss. You realize that the deceased still has an active Facebook account, but nobody can access it.
You can set up a “legacy contact”- someone who will take over your account after it’s owner dies. The legacy contact can save all materials, alert contacts that the person is no longer alive, and prevent the account from sending out automatic friend requests.
To set this, tap Settings >> Account Settings >> Security >> Legacy Contact. Then just pick someone from your contacts.
A trusted contact is someone who can help you get back into your account if you get locked out. It is similar to if someone had an extra key to your house.
To select trusted contacts, open Settings >> Account Settings >> Security >> Your Trusted Contacts >> Choose Trusted Contacts. Then, just like your legacy contact, you can pick from your full list of friends.
You will receive advertisements based on your perceived interests. Some of us really appreciate our privacy, and snooping can be unsettling.
To do this, open Settings >> Account Settings >> Ads
You will have categories that you can choose yes or no from.
