Improve Facebook Account Security By Setting Up App Passwords [Step By Step Guide]

by Rohit Khurana on December 8, 2012


Facebook has introduces a feature called App Password long time back but most Facebook users have never used it. If you are one of the security freaks and want to secure your Facebook account and don’t want Facebook Apps and other 3rd party apps to create security threat to your Facebook account, you will find this feature very useful. I have personally tried to avoid using Facebook Apps because the security vulnerabilities just freak me out. But with this feature, I can log into Facebook Apps by using an app password and not the Facebook password and this helps me feel more secure and helps me protect me privacy better. In this article, I will share a step-by-step guide on how you can create an App password for Facebook Apps which you use. Simply follow the below steps:

Step 1: Log into your Facebook account and click on the small arrow on the right hand side of the Home button and click on account settings.

Set Facebook App Password (1)

Step 2: In account settings, click on the security tab to open security settings.

Set Facebook App Password (2)

Step 3: Under Security settings, click on App Passwords option.
