To generate up the best possible password for your accounts, you should try up the password generating software and online tools.


    #3 Email Usage Secure your Social Media Accounts


    The very important thing that most of the people donít apply while making up the social media accounts is they tend to make up different emails for their new social media account and use up the same email that is already being used for many other purposes before. Try to make the different emails for every different social media account as this will help preventing the malware and the other security issues too.




    #4 Using Phone number Secure your Social Media Accounts


    You should provide your phone number in the account profile of your social media as this can help to prevent up the password encryption attacks on the account of yours and hence it can also help you notify about every new login from any other device. This phone number can then also be used as the emergency recovery option for your account that can help to keep your account really much safe.


    #5 Make it Private Secure your Social Media Accounts


    You should try to make up your profile and other account details all very private so that nobody else other than you can know about that details and finally misuse that. This also helps to protect your account from the hackers to some extent for sure.

    Did you recently receive a shortened URL from your friend or an unknown person? Think twice before clicking on it. Hackers have found a way to hide malicious scrips inside an URL. Sometimes, those shortened URL redirect users to a fake phishing site and users end up giving up the passwords.
