If you are anything like me then you have passwords for everything from banking to logging into your social media accounts. So many passwords to remember or in my case forget! But what happens when you find an issue or alerted to an issue?
Have you ever seen Facebook come up with an alert stating that there has been a suspicious login on your account and that you need to change your password with immediate effect? I certainly have and it rattled me somewhat. It made me realise how much I value my social media content. Until then I didn’t enable the two step authentication on Facebook, but now I do. And you know what it’s well worth enabling.
I don’t know about you but these days as a result of that little scare on Facebook I now treat my social media data and services differently. I treat them more like banking services. I also make sure that anything that I put on social media I would be happy for people to see in public. After all you never know what data breaches may occur. It is worth being wary of third parties holding and storing your data.
Whilst you have probably already got all your new years resolutions sorted for this year you may want to consider adding one to your list. Take security more seriously especially when it comes to your personal social media data. Consider using unique strong passwords and two factor authentication on your social media data and remember to back up your social data regularly.
