5. How to make your App Secret worthless for hackers ;)

1. In your Facebook App, go to the left "Settings" tab and click on the "Advanced" link. Here you can see the "Update Settings IP Whitelist" field. Add your IP address here.Using this step, only the specified IP address will be able to make changes to your App settings. This means if someone finds your App Secret and tries to update your App settings, he won't be able to do it.

Once you have finished these steps you will need to have Facebook approve your App ID request. If at any time you receive an 'error in submission' notice, go back through your App ID process and correct / add / replace whatever Facebook is claiming is an error... Sorry folk, this is Facebook not GraphicAholic or the Fanpage module!

Once approved CLICK HERE to obtain your 'Permanent Access Token' code.
