If you find that there is some application which is not necessary then just click on "x" there as this is also a source to hack someone's account. Third-party applications are critical to spy or Facebook apps, the personal data. If you the first time the Facebook application to allow the application to access your profile obtained, the programmer of the application via a detour to access your personal information and can display it. To restrict the access of third party applications, use the command "Account | Privacy Settings" and click on the bottom of the "Applications Web Pages" on "Edit your settings". Then click on the line "applications that you are using" "Edit settings".

You must do the Privacy setting to make your profile . To do that just go to "Account" -> "Privacy Settings" and Click on "View Settings" at the top of the page. Here you will find the information you share with everyone (friends or not). You can set access rights to your information by clicking the associated menu to the right. You can choose from Everyone / Friends Only / My friends and their friends / Customize.

Normally, the Facebook profile only with username and password protected. However, if spot unauthorized password or guessed, they have free access to Facebook profile. You can not prevent, but at least control who accessed again when Facebook account. Facebook has hidden in the settings of another security mechanism, which allows you to control access to the Facebook account.

I am using facebook from a long time and it is never hacked. One thing that you must take care is that the password should be protected and you must not tell the password to anyone.

To use applications, you usually give permission to use your profile information. Always ask yourself whether the provider of the application is reliable. In known applications that are commonly used, there is probably no danger but be careful because prevention is always better than cure.

Always allow an anti-virus program on your computer that you regularly provide an update. This is very important to have for the prevention prospective.
