Facebook Insecurity

I recently found out that Facebook is incredibly easy to hack. It allows you to access the reset password page without any email confirmation, and it also does not let you modify your security question. Facebook had better do something about this, especially given that Google+ is now going after them. Please go to this Facebook FAQ page and tell that that the answer is not helpful.

We want to make sure that your account and the information in it stays safe, so once you set up a security question on your account there’s no way to update it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I recommend turning on login approvals, so your account can only be used on new devices if you enter a one-time password texted to your phone.

More information about login approvals is here (https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150172618258920), and information about security settings is here (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=security).
