Facebook Cyber Safety Tips

  • Accept ‘friend requests’ only from people you know.
  •  Create a strong password and use it only for Facebook.
  • Do not share your password.
  • Use a one-time password when using Facebook on someone else’s computer.
  • Log out of Facebook after using it on a public computer.
  • Use secure browsing whenever possible.
  • Download ‘apps’ only from sites you trust.
  • Keep your anti-virus software updated.
  • Edit your profile and ‘hide’ your friends list, relationship, mobile numbers and email by selecting ‘visible to only me’ setting.
  • For additional information select ‘visible to friends only’ setting.
  • In privacy settings, go to apps/games/websites and select public search ‘ disabled‘ and turn off all spam apps.
  • Change your password on a regular basis.
  • Share your personal information only with people and organisations that you trust.
  • Log into Facebook only once during a session. If it looks like Facebook is asking you to log in a second time, skip the links and directly type www.facebook.com into your browser address bar.
  • Do not paste scripts (code) in your browser address bar.
  • Beware of goofy posts from anyone, even friends. If it looks something a friend would not post, do not click on it. Scammers might hack your friends accounts and send you links; beware of enticing links coming from your friends.
  • Children should enable mobile protection with their parent’s mobile number (permanent) .www.facebook.com/mobile protection.
