Hi Guys,

If you use Facebook or Instagram, you should think about turning on 2-factor authentication (2FA) as an additional security layer on your account. Once activated, it means that even if someone has your password, they will not be able to log into your account as they will now need to enter a code that is either sent to your phone or generated from an authenticator app installed on your smartphone. Using an authenticator app is the most secure.

Instagram – See their support page HERE or:

  • Tap your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  • Tap more options in the top right, then tap Settings.
  • Tap Security, then tap Two-Factor Authentication.
  • Tap Get Started at the bottom.
  • Choose the security method you want to add and follow the on-screen instructions.

Facebook – See their support page HERE or:

  • Go to your Security and Login Settings.
  • Scroll down to Use two-factor authentication and click Edit.
  • Choose the security method you want to add and follow the on-screen instructions.

On a separate note, I know there seems to be a new threat every day that is more serious than the one last week. Unfortunately, this is the world we live in now. Cyber attackers are everywhere, trying to get access to your data and your money.

Every day, many new threats are discovered, which is happening more and more. Malware creators can send a fishing line out to ten million people simultaneously, and they will be happy if they only get 500 people to take the bait.

Also, commercial spying is a massive industry, and these spying tools are not just reserved for spying on Catalonian Politicians, for example, and other high-profile targets. These days, anyone can be a spy, and it’s effortless to do. All you need is a credit card.

We do our best to keep you protected with Incognito and keep you up to date by telling you what to watch out for and what to avoid and what to do in an attack.

I hope these alerts do not cause you any stress or anxiety. It is better to be informed about what is happening in terms of your direct security risks and potential exposures in the event of a breach. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Have a great weekend,
