How do I secure my social media profile?
« on: February 23, 2017, 04:51:48 PM »

Oftentimes there is no obvious button to click to activate common sense security measures, which can put users off of securing their info at all.  So let’s plummet head first into menus, buttons, and check boxes and see how we can be a little safer when choosing to share information online.
