There’s nothing worst when you don’t know what really is going on with your account online. Something I went through yesterday afternoon. Well, today I can confirmed to all that my new FB account was indeed hijacked. And just like I mentioned in my post yesterday, the little mistakes we do can easily become a gateway to our other accounts and will put them at risk as well. I couldn’t access my Skype account when I tried this morning and I know I got the right password. Luckily, it was a new one I set up the other day to try out using the email I also used on Facebook!
I knew things like this possible to happen, just never thought I’d be in this position quite a lot sooner. We’re still trying to see if I can still get back that account but I have a feeling that I won’t. Just went on a panic change-all-passwords mode! And I would say you do the same when you get a chance, in fact, find some time to do it. Updating our passwords will definitely protect us, even if it’s just an extra layer away from being hacked, plus be very aware that for those who have the same username or even password across your across the social networks, you’re even in greater risk!
Facebook can definitely do a lot better when it comes to protecting us from all these phishing scams and hacking that have been looming around and affecting many on this site. I was told by one of my techy friends that if you want to get hack, the easiest way to do it, is have an FB account!
And please, employ some people that could help with Customer Service as I’m sure we can all agree that we’d like to talk to somebody, even if it means paying towards an upgraded account, I really would not mind!
So, I won’t be on Facebook until the issues get resolved, but you can tweet with me still. 😉
That’s it for now and thanks everyone for all your support and advice!
And to cheer myself up earlier, I made myself this.
Nothing beats a nice hot coco, or in this case, minty hot coco drink that simply made this Momma Bean smile.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and be safe online!
