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.
