Facebook to Offer Extra Security — Via Your Friends
Facebook announced Thursday that it will roll out “Trusted Contacts,” an extra authorization layer of security that allows users to select a few friends who can help verify a user’s identity. Give from three to five of your friends personalized security PIN numbers to hold for you. If you have problems logging in, getting three of those PIN numbers from friends will let you access your account. Nifty! Also, interesting timing for a release, considering all of Twitter’s recent security snafus.
