Facebook has released information about its security measures on the network, with information that hackers can go after Facebook accounts up to 600,000 times every day.

Over 1 billion logins take place every day on the website, and 0.06% of those logins are compromised, according to Facebook.

Some of the security features the social network is rolling out to protect its users include "Trusted Friends", a tool which allows users to nominat ethree to five friends to be sent login codes if the user is locked out of his/her account, that it when his/her account has been hacked.

Apps will also have passwords, which means users will not use the same login info for various third party services.

Half of the UK now has accounts on the website, with it having over 750 million users worldwide, where 50% login to Facebook on any day.
