1. Create Strong Password

Chances are, you already have your password created for Facebook however it is advisable for you to make sure your Facebook password is one of a kind and different from your other online accounts e.g. email, blog, other social media accounts etc.
The best passwords would have the combination of small and capital letters, numbers and symbols, e.g. AbC1@2#*

2. Confirm your mobile number

Confirming your mobile number is one of many ways to enhance your account's security on Facebook. This way, even when you lose or forget your password, Facebook will be able to send you a new password via SMS.

3. Activate Secure browsing

Among other things, to make sure your browsing activity within Facebook is safe, you can turn on the Secure browsing option. By doing this, you automatically limit all external applications that are integrated with Facebook from doing any harm or taking your personal information without your knowledge or approval. To start securing your account, click on Account Settings>Security >Secure Browsing>Edit
The option panel will appear, ’check‘ the box Browse Facebook on a secure connection then click on the Save Changes button.

4. Activate 'Login Approvals‘

Login Approvals is an extended security feature offered by Facebook, and it will require you to enter a security code each time you try to access your Facebook account from unrecognized devices. To activate Login Approvals, go to Account Settings > Security, look for Login Approvals and click on the Edit button.

5. Disconnect Previous Active Sessions

The good thing about Facebook is that it lets you know about your previous active sessions, where you log in from, and what devices you used to access your Facebook account. Now to make sure your account is safe, from the Account Settings > Security page, look for 'Active Sessions‘ and select all boxes and click on remove sessions. All previous sessions will be removed. Now you have killed the activities from other devices.

6. Activate Private Browsing

Another way to prevent another person from accessing your account is by activating the 'Private Browsing' option from your browsers. All browser has this private browsing option, and by activating this option, your activity will not be logged into the browsing history.
Safari > Private Browing.
Firefox >Tools > Start Private Browsing.
Chrome >File > New incognito Window.

7. Don't 'Keep Me Logged In’

The moment you want to login to your Facebook account, at the Log in the page, there‘s a small checkbox that says Keep me logged in. Make sure this box is unchecked. Then, log in as usual. With this on, you will be asked for your email and password every time you launch Facebook.

8. Avoid Spam Links

Facebook is serious about spam and is always enhancing its features to make sure you are safe from being a victim to scams. The types of attacks include money scams through direct or indirect requests via Facebook messages, chat etc, phishing links that will redirect you to fake websites, malicious links that could retrieve your personal information or even harm your computer. There are also chances you may receive emails from 'Facebook’ but it is actually from a phishing website, this modus operandi is part of a scam.
