Social Media Awareness

Privacy Settings:
Regularly review and adjust your privacy settings on social media platforms to control who can see your posts and personal information.

Be Selective:
Be mindful of the information you share publicly. Avoid sharing sensitive personal details like your home address, phone number, or financial information.

Think Before You Share:
Before posting, consider the potential implications of your content. Once something is online, it's difficult to completely remove it.

Avoid Oversharing:
Be cautious about sharing too much information about your daily routines, vacations, or personal events. This information could be exploited by malicious individuals.

Beware of Friend Requests:
Only accept friend or connection requests from people you know and trust. Cybercriminals may create fake profiles to gather information.

Use Strong Passwords:
Ensure your social media accounts are protected with strong, unique passwords. Enable two-factor authentication for an added layer of security.

Be Cautious with Links:
Don't click on suspicious links or download files from unknown sources, even if they're shared by a friend. These could lead to malware or phishing attempts.

Verify Before Sharing News:
Before sharing news articles or information, verify their credibility to avoid spreading false information.

Be cautious when sharing your location. Avoid revealing your exact whereabouts unless necessary.

Check App Permissions:
Review the permissions you've granted to apps connected to your social media accounts. Remove unnecessary or suspicious apps.

Review Tags and Mentions:
Regularly review posts in which you've been tagged or mentioned. Remove any that you're uncomfortable with.

Beware of Verification Code Requests:
Never share verification codes received via SMS or other methods. Scammers may try to trick you into revealing these codes.

Avoid Responding to Unsolicited Messages:
If you receive unsolicited messages asking for personal information or offering deals that seem too good to be true, exercise caution.

Verify Account Information:
If a friend's account suddenly requests money or sensitive information, verify their identity through a different communication channel before taking any action.
