California, Jan 30: 'Personal Security' is the major issue concerened with social networking sites. Earlier, we came across many news of leaking personal details of users from social networking platforms. Facebook, which have more than 500 million active users, was one of the mostly affected site for the data leak.

Later, most of the social networking websites adopted advanced security measures to protect the personal information about its users. In move to make it more secure, Facebook is launching new set of security features to protect users from getting hacked.

Facebook rolled out new security feature called HTTPS that provides more secure and encrypted connection for users. It is same like the passwords used on banking and shopping websites. Also, the new feature will offer 'Social Authentification' that asks a user to identify Facebook friends from their photos.

"Starting today we'll provide you with the ability to experience Facebook entirely over HTTPS. You should consider enabling this option if you frequently use Facebook from public Internet access points found at coffee shops, airports, libraries or schools," Facebook said in a blog post.
