For a few months I have been noticing that my Facebook account is liking random pages on its own, even when I remove them, they keep getting added (liked).

  • Why is this happening?

  • Is my account compromised?

  • What is the solution for this?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

First, remove permissions from all the applications under Account Settings -> Applications.

If you haven't changed your password, do it now. Also change the password to any email accounts associated with your Facebook account.

Start with a clean slate here and see how that goes.

And if you use the same password on any other site, change it there too -- to a different password. – Randy Orrison Nov 5 '11 at 12:53
@RandyOrrison: Very good point and a critical addition. – surfasb Nov 5 '11 at 22:42
