Remote Logout for Facebook

Remote Logout for Facebook

Facebook recently introduced a new safety feature to its repertoire, letting you remotely log out your sessions by another computer.

Here you can see all of the active sessions of your account i.e. all of the areas where you’re logged in together with details like the kind of apparatus, last date of action on it, place an IP address etc.. This gives a clear visual representation of your own login outline and it is simple to spot a spurious action in your account. To log out one or more one of these sessions, just click”end action”.

The recently introduced attribute might not be available to you instantly as they will be slowly rolling it out during the upcoming few weeks.

This is 1 characteristic that certainly comes as a pledge for those people who are doubtful about using the social media sites over the net because of privacy issues. It leaves a solution in situations where an account might be guessed to be hacked – now you can see where else you’re logged in, can finish the session and alter reset your password. What is more, now you can decide to get notified by SMS or email if a computer or mobile device logs to your account.

But as with the majority of technological progress, this one also is accompanied by loopholes. Why would you anticipate that a hacker to hack into your account and await his session to be finished by you personally and password reset? Is it more logical to anticipate that a hacker to rather do the exact same for you personally by logging out your initial sessions when he breaks into your account!

I leave it to you to decide the value of the same, as for my own personal opinion – that is much more of a mental relief for all those folks who are worried about privacy problems – not to mention it’s completely useless.
