Security Tips to keep information private

  • If you have to share something with someone, use the private messaging feature of your social media network/application. This stops cyber-eavesdropping.
  • Turn on your social networking profile security settings when applicable. This helps prevent unauthorized access to your account.
  • Only tag those that would want to be tagged in an update or a photo. This prevents against everyone in your contacts being spammed with notifications. Consequently, don’t let yourself get tagged in an update or photo easily.
  • Don’t share anything about anyone that you don’t want shared about yourself. Respect other people’s privacy, even online.
  • Use a privacy scanner to make sure your social networking accounts are secure. This helps you find and fix any security gaps you may have missed when securing your social networking accounts.
