600,000 Facebook Accounts Compromised Everyday

Facebook says that atleast 600,000 accounts are compromised everyday. To solve this huge privacy issue, Facebook may bring Trusted Friends verification in place to address it. Trusted Friends verification actually sends link or confirmation text message to your friends whom you have marked as Trusted. Once they confirmed your profile and request through that verification link, you will get your new facebook password. Facebook has named this as “Guardian Angels” who will protect your facebook account.
