13 tips that can be helpful for Facebook page security

    1.Create a complicated password

Use unique symbols and do not share them with anyone. Best of all, if the new combination of letters and numbers have never been used before. Today it is difficult to imagine a person who does not use passwords. Social networks, sites, payment cards, and many other resources require unique combinations of numbers. Create a separate file where you will store all your data. This will save you from confusion.

  1. Install quality antivirus

Before creating a profile on social networks, take care of your device’s security. You can install several non-conflicting antivirus programs or apps.

  1. Do not save passwords

Do not save information on your Facebook profile, even on your gadgets. Then no one else will be able to enter your profile.

  1. Add privacy settings to your profile

  1. Accept only clear and transparent requests

Accept requests from people you know and are sure of. Block offensive or questionable or doubtful requests.

Before you accept the request, make sure that you know the person offline. Sometimes people are not what they seem to be. Do not hesitate to ask a few questions that will allow you to be confident in the request and protect all the information about your company. Avoid suspicious requests, for example, related to financial issues, or coming from people under 18 years.

  1. Track mentions

Google and Yahoo may help to find information about your brand or your corporate email. Facebook and Twitter also offer search options. Tracking such information will help to determine if someone suddenly decides to create a fake account with your data.

  1. Fight against fake accounts

If you find fake profiles or accounts you can report to social media administration. Most of them propose a special form to do this.

  1. Delete unnecessary accounts

If you do not need old profiles – delete them. Remember your registration info for each account. If you forget your password, use “Security” or “Help” buttons in the appropriate sections of social media to recover your password.

Check all the images your company was marked on. All photos with your brand, uploaded by other users will remain available after you delete your profile. It is better to ask the authors of the pictures to delete them.

By the way, Twitter and Facebook allow you to make a copy of all information that your profile contains. It’s a good idea to not lose messages, photos and other content before deleting your account.
