    Thanks for this article! I now there was or still are a plugin to Firefox where you can – through WLAN – capture others sessions on example Facebook. This because they dont use https. But with this trick there is no possibility for that. Thanks!

    I you do manage to read that article and a few others on the Hack, it’s not all bad news. The Chrome browser designed a fix for two days after learning about it. For Firefox users, it’s a different story, they have not yet applied a fix and have shown no signs of doing so.

    I’m a bit paranoid about privacy and security and started to be more and more concerned with Facebook. So this is really helpful, thanks!

  11. To be honest I don’t really understand all the technicalities of this https thing. But I do want to be as secure as possible online. I followed the guide and managed to do this successfully. Thanks a lot for sharing!

  12. Thanks for sharing this with us Josh. I appreciate you letting us know how we can get a much more secure account.

    Here is my one question though. For the Login Notifications, I don’t have texting on my cell which is why some of these aren’t applicable to me. Is there an alternative or a way to get around that you may know of?
