Facebook will soon make it compulsory for users to protect their accounts with two-factor authentication. The social media company is contemplating making the two factor authentication mandatory for accounts that are at a high risk of getting hacked. The list of people who fall in the high risk category includes human rights activists, journalists and government officials. Enabling two factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to accounts.

Facebook will roll out the new system as a part of its enhanced security program called Facebook Protect. The program has been set up to protect the accounts of people who may be at high risk of losing their credentials to cyber criminals. The social media app is also testing the possibility of turning on the feature for all users. However, that is not happening any time soon.
