The Facebook security hoax has made a return to your timeline once again. First surfacing in 2012 and returning again in 2014 and 2015 the scam is surrounding Facebooks privacy settings, warning users that their data may be used by Facebook without permission.
Here is the security hoax status that you will see circulating Facebook:
Regardless whether you put this message as your status or not, nothing will change and the social giants will not be using your data. If you are unsure about your privacy settings then you can always change these by visiting the Security Centre.
Facebook have issued statements in the past in respect to rumours that have spread around the social networking site. You may remember a particular message doing the rounds stating that Facebook was going to charge unless you set a certain status, that too is a hoax.
Also it is worth noticing that Facebook’s tagline on their sign up page says “It’s free and always will be”.
