Hello Celena,

It is very crucial that you protect your social media accounts for might never know the intentions of some people who come across it. Some of the techniques you can use to ensure that your account is safe are the following:

  • Make sure that the password you use is strong, and it cannot be guessed easily. The best way to ensure this is to mix character symbols, numbers and alphabetical letters and avoid using easy to guess passwords like your names or date of birth.
  • You need to change your password regularly so that you do not give the people that might have the intention of attacking your account the chance to do so.
  • If there are additional security mechanisms offered by the social media accounts make sure that you utilize them so that you do not depend on the password alone to secure your account.

Regards,

Carl
