Protecting Your Social Media Accounts From Phishing

Avatar of tanya Submitted by tanya July 3, 2013 Website: www.searchenginejournal.com

The Onion was recently hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army and it made me re-evaluate the security of my personal social media accounts and, more importantly, those of clients. A company’s first and last line of defense are the clients!

The majority of netizens understand web security, but there are diverse ways social media accounts can be compromised. And let’s be honest, it’s not something people in general or us internet marketers tend to think about on a daily basis – especially when a huge Google update is on the loom.

The Syrian Electronic Arma (SEA) showed us just how easy it was for them to hack “America’s Finest News Source” by phishing Onion employees’ Google Apps accounts. It all started on one unsuspecting day in May and caused a huge headache for them.

    “SEA used very basic methods involving Google Plus to hack The Onion.” This is really sad. To think that it wasn’t such a complicated maneuvering of situations or they used a high end tool to hack these accounts. They did basic methods.

    If that’s the case, what a person needs to do is apply the following tips given in this article.

    Thank you so much for the reminder!
