Keeping your social networks secure.

Following last week’s news that over 6 billion LinkedIn users had their accounts hacked into this was just another reminder as to how vulnerable social media users can be when they’re using simple, easy to remember passwords.

Twitter account users have also had their fair share of account hacking and it’s not just social networks that get affected, websites are frequently hacked into.

All this is potentially damaging to you, your business which ultimately costs time and money.

On the Cloud Bookkeeping team, we always recommend that people use a combination of letters (upper and lower case), numbers and symbols and make sure the password is as random as possible. This makes it much more secure.

There are lots of Apps out there now that can help keep all your passwords together. Alternatively, a password protected spreadsheet (something which you can remember easily!) typed in ‘white’ text, so to all intents and purposes it looks like a blank document, works really well. All you need to do to see your passwords (that only you know are there!) is to go over and highlight the text to red or another colour and low and behold, they appear!

So spend a few moments making sure all your accounts are as secure as you can make them. It’s well worth investing a few moments to get this system in place.
