How To Stop Yourself Getting Fraped On Facebook

Updated on September 1, 2015

Why log out?

If you have ever had a moment where you have forgotten to log out of your email account or possibly your facebook account on a computer that others use, then you may well know the feeling of having other people snooping through your private correspondence. It's not the best and can be a security risk also as most people have the passwords to online banking etc stored in their email account. Do the following and you wont have to worry about this happening again. The following instructions will also set up your computer to automatically delete your browsing history, which gives you another level of privacy.

This is a mild example of someone leaving their facebook account open. Far worse things can happen!

The solution to your problem. Plus its free and extremely easy to use!

This will only work on computers that you regularly use as it requires you to install a piece of software. This will only take you a couple of minutes and you'll never have to worry about logging out of anything again, so it is worth doing.

The software is called ccleaner. It is from a company called Piriform and is completely safe. It deletes temp files, empties your recycle bin and most importantly logs you out of anything that you have signed in to with a password automatically when you restart your computer, meaning you never have to remember to do it.

To download it click here. This will start downloading it and will open up a dialogue box asking if you want to run or save it. It's perfectly fine to do either, if you do save it make sure you know where you put it, then double click it. If you choose to run it from the browser window, then no problem either, it will start installing automatically.

All you have to do is click the next button and then click install. The installer will do the rest. It will also open up ccleaner after its finished installing (will only take a few seconds) and leave you with the following screen.

Just make sure these boxes are checked. It should only take you a few seconds.

If you tick the check boxes that I have clicked here, then it will delete your personal details automatically and sign you out of any email program / facebook etc. Please make sure that you know your passwords as if you have forgotten them or anything then you'll have to get them again. If you know them then no problems!

After you have selected the check boxes, you're nearly done. You just need to select the settings option, which I've highlighted on the picture below to set this up to work automatically..

Select the settings tab, highlighted here with a large arrow

Then select this button here

After that all you have to do is select the option at the top, labelled 'Run ccleaner when the computer starts'. I like to also select the one below, so that I can right click the recycle bin to quickly open up the program if I want to for any reason. This is optional but I recommend it.

Safe and relaxed!

After this... You're done! You can then close the program as you would any program by clicking the red x at the top right and after that it will work its magic automatically. When you turn your computer off at the end of your session, then the next time you or anyone turns it on, ccleaner will run and sign you out of anything that you were signed into, meaning no one can load up your email / facebook / anything else and be automatically signed in as you. It will also automatically empty your recycle bin and your internet browsing history, so you can browse safely and in private without worrying about people snooping through your personal info.

If you want to do this without restarting your computer, you can also just right click the recycle bin on your dashboard and select 'run ccleaner'. This will log you out of everything in one go.
