Most of us are on social media. It’s free and convenient to stay in touch with friends and family that are far away.
That’s the same reason why hackers are on it too. It’s free and convenient!
Plus, there are a lot of people on social media which means there are more targets for the bad guys.
According to recent studies social media attacks rose 43% last year alone!
How to stay safe:
If something looks too good to be true, stay away from it! It usually is!
Don’t click on those ads! A lot of time they hide scams and malicious downloads.
If you get a ‘friend’ request, check out their profile before accepting.
Make sure that you have an antivirus installed and that’s it’s up-to-date!
