How to protect your social media identity

  • Use the privacy settings on social media websites to manage who can access your profile.
  • If you get a friend request from someone you don’t know, don’t accept it. If you are interested in accepting it, ask the mutual friends that you supposedly have in common who the person is. If they can’t give you definite answers about the person, ignore the request.
  • Be cautious if you receive direct messages from new friends that request details or your personal information.
  • Notify the website if your profile has been hacked or images have been stolen.
