Practice safe social networking

With more and more people joining social networks, there has been an increased danger of social engineering, a form of identity theft where thieves gather personal information from social networking sites.

How to protect yourself

  • Before joining a social networking site or community, research it online to make sure it's legitimate.
  • Do not use the same username and password to log into social networking sites that you use to access your online banking accounts.
  • Never share personal information such as: User IDs, PINs and account numbers on social media sites.
  •  Create a screen name that doesn't reveal too much about you.
  • Be careful when clicking links. Even if the message appears to come from a friend, contact the sender directly to make sure it's authentic.
  • Post only information you are comfortable with others seeing, and regard information posted on social media sites as public and permanent.
  • Use privacy settings to limit access to your information.
  • Never include any information that can help thieves steal your identity, such as your address, phone number or even employment information.
