Security is important to just about everything we do. Some take it more seriously than others, and at times, it does make things more difficult. But we all want to be protected in the end.
Facebook and other social media platforms are perfect sites for hackers and scammers to try and do their damage. This is particularly true for Facebook Messenger.
Today, my godmother sent me a Facebook message with this strange link, which, of course, I did not click. I immediately sent her a message on her profile asking if she sent it, and not surprisingly, she did not.
Facebook has recognized the dangers that can occur in Messenger, and they have created a resource to help you determine if a message is legit or a scam. Called Privacy and Safety Hub, it includes valuable information on how you can keep your account safe. The homepage provides information on the threats you might encounter and links to search for the best ways to protect yourself from them.
