Security and privacy have become the two biggest vices of social media. There are a majority of people getting off the net in order to make sure that their private life remains private.

Facebook, the social networking giant, is trying its level best to curb these numbers. In a effort in this do so, the social network has announced that it will soon sending banner notifications to anyone whose account's security might be in danger by the government or if company suspects someone is trying to hack into it.


Announcing the same in a blog post, Facebook said that the privacy of its users is on its priority list.

While we have always taken steps to secure accounts that we believe to have been compromised, we decided to show this additional warning if we have a strong suspicion that an attack could be government-sponsored. We do this because these types of attacks tend to be more advanced and dangerous than others, and we strongly encourage affected people to take the actions necessary to secure all of their online accounts," read an excerpt from the blogpost.

These banner notifications will only be exclusive to people whose account's privacy have been compromised and seeing such a banner doesn't mean Facebook on the whole has been compromised.

While we hope each one of you reading this article never ever gets to see one of these notifications but even if you do, don't panic, just change your password and you're sorted.

Kudos to you Facebook!
