    Hi,
    I use WP-FB-Autoconnect basic plugin for my website. I see that everytime i use my FB credentials to login to the site, some random messages are being sent from my ID in facebook. Can somebody help me in explaining what the issue is?

    Also, how should i protect my website from such hackers in future?

    I highly doubt anybody "hacked" your account because of this plugin. More than a hundred thousand users have downloaded it, I've personally had nearly half a million logins, and not one instance of a "hack" has ever been reported. The fundamentals of the plugin have remained unchanged for more than two years, and no Facebook credentials are passed outside of Facebook's well-established and secure authentication process.

    You probably just have a virus or keylogger on your system or something.
