DON'T Get HACKED! 🥺 on Facebook - Avoid BOT Malware

 

These are the top 10 actionable items you can do to harden the security of your Facebook Business page, which we will elaborate on next.

Your First Line of Digital Defense

Create Unbreakable Passwords

  • Mix upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Avoid personal or predictable details.
  • Refresh your password regularly for continual protection.

 

Example: Consider ‘Jane’s Bakery’, which had a simple password related to its opening year. After a security breach, they switched to a complex password combining symbols, numbers, and both cases, significantly reducing their vulnerability.

Action: Refresh your password regularly for continual protection.

The Digital Gatekeeper

Activate Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

  • An essential layer of security, requiring both a password and a unique code.
  • Easy to set up via ‘Security and Login’ settings.
  • Requires both password and unique code verification.

 

Example: ‘Dave’s Designs’ implemented 2FA after an attempt to hack their account was thwarted by the need for a second verification step, showcasing its effectiveness.

Action: Easy to set up via ‘Security and Login’ settings.

The Power of Privilege

Think Through Your Admin Access Management

  • Assign roles based on necessity to limit access.
  • Regularly update these permissions.
  • Mandate 2FA for all admins.

 

Example: ‘Green Grocers’ realized the importance of admin roles when an over-privileged intern accidentally altered key page settings. They now use role-based access to limit such risks.

Action: Mandate 2FA for all admins.

Vigilance Against Invisible Threats

Scrutinize Third-Party App Access

  • Regularly review and revoke unnecessary app permissions.
  • Remove unnecessary apps.
  • Vet new apps through the app review feature.
  • Monitor app activities vigilantly.

 

Example: ‘Tech Tools Ltd.’ found unauthorized data sharing through third-party app. Regular app audits have since become their standard practice to prevent such breaches.

Action: Monitor app activities vigilantly.

Fostering a Secure Community

Master Moderation and Community Management

  • Establish and enforce content and behavior guidelines.
  • Actively moderate content and interactions.
  • Engage constructively with your audience.

 

Example: ‘Happy Travels Agency’ encountered spam in their page comments, affecting customer experience. By establishing strong moderation guidelines, they regained control of their community space.

Action: Engage constructively with your audience.

Mobile, the New Frontier

Mobile Device Security

  • Keep your device updated with the latest security patches.
  • Use unique passwords for both device and Facebook account.
  • Be cautious about app permissions and network security.

 

Example: ‘Fit for Life Gym’ had their page compromised through an insecure mobile device. Post-incident, they emphasized device security, updating regularly and using unique passwords.

Action: Be cautious about app permissions and network security.

Admins – The Unsung Heroes

Admin Personal Account Security

  • Encourage private profiles and SSL connections.
  • Regularly review app access.

 

xample: The personal account of ‘Bella’s Boutique’ admin was hacked, jeopardizing the business page. They now advocate for stronger personal account security among all admins.

Action: Encourage private profiles and SSL connections.

  

The Art of Digital Hygiene

Managing Apps, Comments, and Potential Abuse

  • Be selective with apps linked to your page.
  • Moderate comments and posts proactively.
  • Identify and ban malicious users.

 

Example: ‘Local Library’ faced backlash over inappropriate comments left unmoderated on their page. They learned the importance of vigilant comment management and user banning.

Action: Be selective with apps linked to your page.

Privacy, a Strategic Move

Utilize Page Privacy Settings

  • Temporarily make your page private during updates.
  • Adjust ‘Page Visibility’ in ‘Settings’ > ‘General’.

 

Example: ‘Creative Canvas Art’ used privacy settings effectively during a major rebranding, unveiling their new look only after thorough preparation.

Action: Temporarily make your page private during updates.

Staying Ahead of the Curve

Regular Security Audits and Updates

  • Regularly check your page’s security settings.
  • Stay updated on Facebook’s security features.
  • Educate your team on security best practices.

 

Example: ‘Innovative Tech Solutions’ once overlooked a critical Facebook update, which left them vulnerable to a new phishing technique. Now, they stay vigilant with regular security audits and updates.

Action: Educate your team on security best practices.
