Trusted Friends is a feature that if your account is inaccessible , codes are sent to three to five of your selected friends and you can login with those codes. App password adds a second line of defense against hackers adding a separate password for apps. You can now also be on Facebook entirely securely. If something suspicious appears, your friends pictures will be used as a captcha
