Privacy and Security on Social Media
Social media is not a new term! By now, the whole world is acquainted with or living with it in their day-to-day lives. We all are clinging to social media to such a massive extent that many of us share a lot of personal information on different social media platforms, thus calling for cybercrimes! Following are some ways you can follow to attain privacy on your social media accounts:
- Carefully skim through all the available privacy settings on your social media account(s). Never rely on the default settings.
- Do not click on posts like “Find your death day,” “Which celebrity do you resemble,” etc.
- Install authentic antivirus tools in your laptop(s) and smartphone(s) devices.
- Always keep your location turned off. Some websites also keep track of all your activities offline, so you can ensure the least plausible loss by keeping your area turned off.
- Use very high privacy control(s) to allow only some selective people and groups like family and some selected friends to see/view your photos and status updates.
- Always set up any Security Answers; they are essential in securing your privacy over your social media accounts.
- Please do not leave your social media accounts logged in; in this way, you invite cybercrime, as they can hack your accounts or act as impostors.
- Please do not disclose your children’s school name, bus route, etc.
- Many social networking websites ask for your information like birthdays, email addresses, etc.; sometimes, you share a lot of personal information. So this way, hackers can hack your accounts by using this info, and you can also e-invite many thieves when you share your personal information. Take the following precautions:
- Always try to set a strong password(s), and make sure you change your passwords at regular intervals. Also, never put the same password(s) for more than one website or account.
- Do not keep very easy-to-hack passwords like birthdays or your name, whose information can be easily searched from your social media accounts.
- Avoid revealing your location.
- Do not open your social media account(s) from untrusted places like cafes, hospitals, hotels, etc.
- Do not click on remember password(s) when the same is offered to you by different web browsers.
- Never post your travel plans and itinerary, and also, do not mention the exact date/time of your travel.
- Please do not post your photos while you are still on your trip; instead, post them after you return. The best you can do is to stay offline during any vacation.
- Clear cache & cookies on your browser(s) regularly.
