Facebook Rolls Out Login Approvals and Security Protections Against Clickjacking and Self-XSS


Facebook has released several new security features designed to thwart unauthorized logins, cross-site scripting, and clickjacking that trick users into sharing spam to the news feed. Login approvals require suspicious logins to be confirmed with a code texted to a user’s phone, while self-XSS and clickjacking protection  warns users and requires them to confirm their actions when pasting links into their browser or clicking suspicious Like buttons.

These protections should reduce the prevalence of hijacked accounts and highly visible spam in the news feed that perpetuate the public perception of Facebook as less safe than the rest of the internet.
