Some times we feel insecure in public place. Our social media platforms are as same as that. It also a public place. We have to make our account secure from hackers. We have many types of personal information in our social media, it could be passed or compromised many times while not being serious about this.
1. Strong Password
It means your password should be strong. We often use a simple password because we think we could forgot our password or the disgusting face of the password, but it’s totally wrong. We should use a hard password. Strong password means with the combination of upper case letter, lower case letter, Numbers, and special character. Here is a demo (Example password).
2. Using Real Name and Information
It’s Important to use real information while creating your social media account. Because if any time you lose your account and you need to apply for recovering your site Facebook will review your information with your valid Govt. photo ID. If they can not match your ID information with your account you will not get it back. Never use a duplicate name in your account. Example: Angle, Blue Butterfly etc. So it’s important to use everything real.
3. App Permission
Whenever we login any third party website or app through Facebook, the app said to login in Facebook with their browser. It’s not safe. If that app is not authorized or trusted never login that with Facebook. If you are already done that then go to setting and remove all the entrusted or unnecessary website or app from Facebook. It might have possibilities to passed your personal information through that app or site.
4. Hiding Sensitive Information
Never show your Personal information in your profile. Make that only me in privacy. Sensitive information means your Phone Number, Email, or any other thing that you used to access your Facebook account. If any hacker get that information their work could be easier.
5. Never Open Unknown Link or URL
If any unknown person or source send you any kind of unknown link that you are not familiar never open that link. If any one send you short links like bitly or google short link that you don’t know the person never click on that. It is possible to hack your site or your login access passed through clicking on that link.
6. Two Step verification or Authentication
Well this is the most secure thing as I think. It means when ever you try to get login from a new device Facebook will send you a temporary password or code in your mail or phone number. If you success to use that code only then you can login. This two step verification is very effective and secure way to keep safe your site. Not only that if any one try to get access on your account a warning mail or text will came to your mail or phone. So use two step verification.
7. Remove Previous logins
If you are using 2 or more device and logins with all of that then always clear or remove all that logins from your account. So that your account will logged out from every other device that you don’t want to keep.
8. Don’t login from unknown device
Unknown device means anywhere like cyber cafe, friends computer or mobile or any where else that you don’t trust. There also could be malware and spams and your account could be hacked.
9. Never mess with any one you don’t know
Many times we challenge or argue with peoples we don’t know. It could be dangerous. We thought that we are on virtual world, he/she cannot get me. So I can get mess with them. Because we don’t know who is that person over there. We never know when what happens to us. We do many small fault and it could cost a big in our life in future. Every thing could be linked through each other so never mess with any one you don’t know on Facebook.
10. Hire a Professional Hacker (only for professional person)
You always need to make sure that your site is secured or not. If you are following all the process being safe then finally hire a professional hacker to optimize your account. A professional hacker can tell you what are the weakness and what to improve or secure more in your account. So, check your account by a professional hacker.
