The Company’s Constant Policy Changes And Questionable Security Practices Could Put Your Facebook Password At Risk
Your password may have been stored in clear text and not encrypted, making it easy to steal your password and hack your account (this includes your business accounts). If this happens – hackers are able to access your information and impersonate you and your business. We have all seen it happen on our social feeds. This is your sign to update your password right now.
Keep Your Facebook Password Login Information Separate From Other Accounts
Many users link their Facebook password access to use other services, like Instagram and other apps on our phones and devices. The convenience provides ease of use but also means your password is being exposed between other applications, giving hackers more access to valuable personal information. If any of these applications are being used on business computers, that can put an entire company at risk for a data breach in computer security.
Furthermore, some people make the mistake of using the same password for Facebook that they use for banking, finances, email, etc. It has been shown how easily Facebook loses control of it’s privacy protections.
