Attention Facebook Users! Find Out If Your Account Is At Risk, Here’s How
umours are circulating Facebook that claim typing BFF into the comments of a Facebook post will reveal if your account is in danger of being “hacked”.
Such messages claim that if the letters BFF appear in green then your account is safe, while if it does not your account is at risk of being hacked.
The rumours, examples below, are nonsense, and make no sense whatsoever.
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, invented the word BFF. To make sure your account is safe on Facebook, type BFF in a comment. If it appears green, your account is protected. If it does not appear green, change your password immediately because it will be hacked.
Make sure you do not think about your page or account
Type Bff in a comment
If it appears green, your account is protected and if it appears normal, you must change the password. Try it
While it is true that typing BFF into Facebook does [usually] result in those letters turning green, this is in no way indicative of your account being (or not being) at risk. It doesn’t even make any sense to introduce such a bizarre and arbitrary method of determining if your account is at risk.
