BFF Security Feature is Fake

BFF means ‘Best Friends Forever”. It is a unique Text Delight feature from Facebook that automatically animates green and red hands giving a high five when published.

Right now it is not clear that from where this security feature is originated. However the most funny thing is that BFF went viral like a fire.

Tech websites Snopes anf TechNave said that BFF security Feature is not new and started in 2017. As already discussed upon writing BFF, meme animation originates in green or red color, but it doesn’t reveal whether you account is hacked or insecure.

BFF Security Feature began circulating across social media in March 2018 with this message:

“Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, invented the word BFF. To make sure your account is safe on Facebook, type BFF in a comment. If it appears green, your account is protected. If it does not appear in green, change your password immediately because it will be hacked.”

This feature is just a hoax and the reason of your text not turning green is that you have outdated version of Facebook. So in order to get result in green color, update your Facebook app or Internet Browser. Old versions of Facebook app or Internet Browser can be easily hacked by hackers.

However if your think that if the BFF doesn’t turn green your account if not safe. It’s wrong.
