October is National Cyber Security Month

From Aliro Marketing, who is advising business owners to take this action on FB & IG.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, so you'll want to save this post as I provide instructions for how to turn on 2 factor authentication for your Facebook & Instagram accounts to add a layer of security to your accounts. Why do you need to do this?

Well, it seems like a new round of hackers are up to no good again - In the past 2 weeks, I've seen several personal Facebook connections say they "have not created a new account, don't accept a friend request from me".

And one of my clients recently got maliciously hacked, too. The hacker removed me as admin from her account so I could no longer post for her; the hacker demoted her to "employee" status so she could not make any changes to her own FB page (including reinstating me as admin); the hacker created a fake business manager account to take ownership of her FB business page; and the hacker ran up $750 in fake ads on her credit card.

It’s important to turn on 2 Factor Authentication because it puts an added layer of security on your accounts to prevent hackers from taking over your accounts.

That's why I wrote out step-by-step instructions - with screenshots so you know where to click - for Facebook & Instagram on how to turn on 2 factor authentication for your accounts. I want you to be protected!

If you have any questions, please reach out. And please send this to anyone you know so they can be protected too.
