Facebook Security Tips
Facebook is becoming more and more popular these days as more and more people use it to connect with their friends. However, Facebook has some security problems and therefore protecting your Facebook account is important for your security. There are things you can do in order to protect your Facebook account from hackers.
These tips are presented below in this article:
a) Your profile should be made private from your privacy settings in Facebook. This way you will only allow known people to connect with you and see your details. Therefore your photos will be available only for your accepted friends.
b) Another way of protecting yourself would be through blocking the people you do not want to share information with. There is a block option you can use for every Facebook user if you want. People who are now bothering you will not be able to do that anymore.
c) When blocking a person you can report that person for harassment or for cyber stalking. You should report that if you feel it is the case for that.
d) You should only add people you know. This is one of the best Internet security measures. It is not the best thing to constantly add people you simply do not know or never heard of.
e) It is advisable to avoid buying anything from Facebook. There are a lot of applications you need to pay for but try to use only the free things you can. You should not offer your credit card numbers to such third parties.
There are many people who simply ignore all the above security measures. They think that these security measures are not imperative as many people have Facebook accounts and only few of them really had problems. This is true but it is better to be safe than sorry. Even if there are only a small percentage of people having problems with their Facebook accounts, you would not want to be among them.
Information, money, and valuable pictures can be lost if you fail to understand the importance of security measures. After someone hacks into your email or computer it will be too late to take the necessary security measures. It is always better to prevent than to deal with the consequences. So look at Internet security as a prevention measure.
