Facebook now detects Imposter Accounts

Facebook has developed a new security feature that will automatically alert you if someone is impersonating your facebook profile.

According to Masahable, Facebook now alerts you if an imposter uses your profile photo or username to create a fake account.

 The security system will automatically alert the real account owner who inturn notifies facebook's security team to delete the account.

Facebook has advised its real account owners  threatened by an imposter  to visit it's security tool to alert the security team using this link. .

Facebook encourages it's members who haven't checked their security settings in a while to do so urgently.

Online security has become a great concern for  individuals , organisations and governments across the globe working collectively to ensure online safety.
