Have you or your friends spotted something unusual on your Facebook profile? If they have here's how to check if you've really been hacked.

The first thing to do is to log in to Facebook on your computer. You don't need to log in from a computer but it is recommended because some of the options don't show on mobile.

Once you're logged into Facebook on your computer, navigate to the settings page by clicking on the triangle at the top right of the screen and clicking on 'Settings'.
