Security Audit for your Social Accounts
Unauthorised access to your social media accounts can have far-reaching consequences. However, we can reduce the chances of this happening by undertaking a security review.
Make sure your own social media accounts have the following
- A long password, at least 20 characters
- The password is unique, meaning that is not used elsewhere
- That you have enabled 2FA
This worksheet will help you tick off your progress.
I also recommend that you check the security advice of each platform to make sure you are maximising your security.
If relevant, review the accounts you manage for other people/businesses and make sure they also hold this security standard.
Then make sure that any other users of these accounts meet these requirements.
If it feels like a big undertaking to work through all of your accounts, break it down into smaller tasks and be sure to recognise your progress as you work through it.
