Lately, many of our friends and/or clients have fallen victim to various Social Media hackers and scammers, and unfortunately lost control of their accounts.
Hackers or scammers can strike in a variety of ways, so we’ve listed the most common ones below so you can be precautious.
– Phishing Attacks: Never respond to emails, DMs (Instagram messages), Social Media posts, etc., that ask for personal information, passwords, account numbers or PINs. Official agencies will NEVER ask you for such sensitive information through these avenues.
– Suspicious links: An acquaintance of yours who works in make-up sent you a message on Instagram asking you to vote for them in an online contest for… make-up? Don’t click on the link they sent you for ANY REASON! Such links may also be sent to you by e-mail. Always check the sender’s email.
No, Netflix is not spoiling its own shows. If you’ve seen pictures of billboards ruining the latest seasons Stranger Things or Love Is Blind, the ads aren’t real—though the spoilers are. That said, it wouldn’t be a terrible idea.
