Social networking site Facebook has been on a roll lately. Last week they unleashed a new feature allowing users to download their information from the social site, and today they’ve added two really good security features: one-time passwords and remote logout.
The features do what they sound like.
One-Time Passwords: You can now text “otp” (one time password) to 32665 (which corresponds to “FBOOK” on your keypad) from your cellphone and you’ll receive a temporary password you can use once and that expires in 20 minutes—perfect for times you’re accessing your account from a public computer.
Remote Logout: This one’s not brand new, but it is apparently rolled out to everyone. Say you logged into Facebook on a friend’s computer and forgot to sign out. With global logout, you can visit your Account settings, click the Account Security section to view what devices you’ve logged into Facebook with, and remotely logout from any device.
