Social media is a big thing for everyone these days whether you are a business or a home user but you need to make sure you are using it in the most secure way.
If you would like to learn more about staying safe on the internet then read this blog for our advice.
We all enjoy spending time on social media and letting our friends and family see what we are up to, however have you ever thought that someone is more interested in your life then they need be? When you go on holiday and you are posting pictures you are vulnerable people know you are not at home. We advise that when you go on holiday post your pictures after your return as it’s more secure to wait.
Have you got a strong password for your social media accounts?
We recommend a strong password but a lot of people cant remember long passwords with different characters in, so we would advise you to use a password manager. This will generate a password which is random and your password manager remembers it for each different account.
Accepting people you don’t know?
Don’t accept people you don’t know, this could be a fake account and someone is trying to set you up and get personal details off you.
The hooks are very clever and make things look legitimate so that users believe it and fall for the scam.
