Your social accounts contain a considerable amount of personal data. Believe it or not, those personal data can be stolen easily by hackers with some tricks. So be sure to secure them well to avoid hacking by malicious individuals.
We have shared some knowledge about data protection. In this post, we will discuss the security of your social media accounts. As always, we think signal jammers are one of the best tools to safeguard your internet activities. But using a jammer alone is not enough. More things have to be done to reach 100% safety.
Choose complex, different and meaningless passwords!
No person or computer should be able to guess it. The CNIL publishes advice for creating an effective password, remembering it and storing it in a database.
Do not share your password
It is strongly advised not to communicate your password to a third person, to save it in a browser if you have not defined a master password or in an unsecured application.
Activate an alert device in case of intrusion
A double authentication is an option that can be activated on most social networks. When you connect from an unknown computer station, the social network will ask you to confirm access by entering a code that you will have received by SMS or e-mail. Other functions offer to alert you if an outside person tries to connect to your account from an unknown terminal (PC, smartphone, tablet, mac).
Remotely disconnect terminals still linked to your account
Again, this option, available on most social networks, allows you to identify all the terminals with which you have connected to your account. It is advisable to deactivate the link with terminals you no longer use when possible. A connection identified from an unknown browser or an unknown city may give you a hint.
Disable third-party apps connected to your account
Sometimes third-party apps connected to your account are vulnerable to an outside attack. It is advisable to disable third-party applications that you have previously allowed access to and that no longer serve you.
Adjust your privacy settings
By guessing your name, your function, and your list of friends, a malicious person could easily deduce information used to reset your account or usurp your identity to change your password, for example.
