I found today that my Facebook account was being used by four individuals here in Idaho. Seems that and which I have Kaspersky Lab doesn't have an anti-hacking in their 2017 Total Security program. Also agent at Facebook told me that there are forty-nine foreign individuals listening in. 

I want a program that will block these individuals from stealing my information. So, I'm open to suggestions so that this issue will go away. Have even ask for a partial refund of my subscription if Kaspersky Lab can't fix the issue.

 

Thanks

Ronnie Keatley

No amount of security software is going to defend against hackers, scammers and malware writers for those who do not practice safe computing and stay informed. It has been proven time and again that the user is a more substantial factor (weakest link) in security than the architecture of the operating system or installed protection software. Security is all about layers and not depending on any one solution, technology or approach to protect yourself from cyber-criminals. The most important layer is you...the first and last line of defense.Security begins with personal responsibility, common sense, safe browsing habits, understanding security and following Best Practices for Safe Computing are all essential to protecting yourself from hackers and scammers.

Kaspersky Lab doesn't have an anti-hacking 

 

That's not how this works. Hacking is a complicated process and it is always possible since nothing is absolutely perfect. Kaspersky can help protect your computer against malware, but that's it. It won't stop any skilled hackers, nor will it stop you from doing something you shouldn't. No AV will, in fact. As quietman7 mentioned, security is all about layers, the most important one being the user.

 

Your mindset about hacking is completely wrong, but nevermind, here's a simplified list of things you need to do : change your facebook password, don't ever click on anything even remotely weird, install an ad blocker and stop being naive - Kaspersky is not going to protect you against your own mistakes. Hacking facebook accounts is really hard these days unless somebody steals your password or brute forces his way in because of weak ones. You may have installed malware on your computer or typed your password somewhere where you shouldn't. In both cases, change your password to something long and not easily predictable, an example : Lycanthropic_Cockroach97

 

Also, be careful where you put your information. The internet is not a friendly place. For example, you have written your full name in your post which was completely unnecessary and avoidable. If I could learn your IP which is easy to accomplish, I could locate your city, potentially find other information about you, your family, friends, your job, your interests, maybe even find your exact address and lot of other things. If somebody with malicious intents could get their hands on this kind of information they could cause you a lot of trouble. Again, the internet is dangerous and you can't trust random strangers.
