Securing your Social Media Accounts

Securing your Social Media Accounts

​ ​

​Here are some tips to protect your Social Media accounts against unauthorized access:​

​ ​

​ ​

​1. Enable 2FA (two-factor authentication) ​

​Enabling two-factor authentication may require more effort in logging in to your accounts but this gives an extra layer of security. This means even if a cybercriminal has your credentials, they will still need a piece of code that's only available on your device.​

​ ​

​Here is the most common location where it can be enabled: ​​Settings​​ > ​​Privacy​​ > ​​Security and Account​​ > ​​Two-Factor Authentication​​.​

​ ​

​Pro tip!​​ Enable "new log-in notifications" so you are notified when a new device is used to log-in to your account.​

​ ​

​ ​

​2. Create Strong Passwords​

​Did you know that a password consists of 8 pure numbers only can instantly be cracked?​

​Nowadays, accounts already require ​​at least 8 character​​ password and a ​​combination of numbers, letters, and symbols​​. It is a good practice to avoid easy-to-guess passwords and it is also important to change them every 3 months. ​

​ ​

​ ​

​3. Strengthen Your Account Security with Trend Micro​

​Use Trend Micro ​​Password Manager​​! It can help you secure and manage your passwords online!​
