Facebook: How to keep your data secure

The start of the new year is a great time to sweep out the cobwebs from your digital cupboards. So why not add increasing data security to that resolution list?

Facebook thinks it’s a good idea, and has released a blog post outlining the best ways to keep your stuff safe.

Armour your Account

The sheer amount of personal and potentially commercial data stored on your Facebook profile means you should consider using a bespoke password.

Like all passwords, try to make it a bit challenging and unique. So no birthdays, phone numbers, or addresses.

Login Alerts

It’s good practice to set up Login Alert , so you’ll receive a notification if your account is being accessed from a different device.

You can also set up two-factor authentication for added protection.

To set up a Login Alert, go to Settings and click on the Security section.

Page Admins

If you’re managing a brand Page, now’s a good time to check who in your organisation is an Admin, and what rights they have.

Make sure your Page Admin list is up-to-date. The last thing you need is a former employee having access to potentially sensitive information, or worse.

Lock down your data

When posting from your personal account, do an audit on who can view your content via Privacy Checkup.

This lets you control who you share content with. It also shows who can contact you, and look you up.

Finally, to see how other users are seeing your Page, click “View As” on the right side of your cover photo.
