by John Adward I am working as a technical expert

Social media is not just about uploading photos, videos or chatting with your friends; it has a number of other features to maintain the privacy of your data and security of your account. And, if you don’t pay attention to both these things, you could be the next target of the hackers who attack the website with large user base.

These cybercriminals can take over your account and ultimately your personal photos, videos and other media files stored in it. According to recent reports by the top cybersecurity companies such as McAfee, it has been revealed that users with zero or less privacy are more likely to get hacked. Therefore, it is the need of the hour to make necessary privacy and security settings for your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media accounts.

Social media is not just about uploading photos, videos or chatting with your friends. But also to maintain the privacy of your data and security.

Create strong passwords for all social media

Passwords such as “abc@123, abcdef, 123456” and more are easy to crack.

You can also download McAfee SafeKey from mcafee.com/activate, which is a password management system that can store your passwords securely and minimizes the trouble of remembering different passwords for your different social media accounts.

Don’t publicize everything
