How to keep your business profile on Facebook secure

Privacy and security is of utmost importance when signing up for a Facebook account. Both personal accounts and business pages can become compromised if the correct measures are not taken. This is especially true when you consider that business pages are set up and directly managed through personal accounts. If you are concerned about privacy issues and protecting your profile and/or business profile on Facebook, take a look at these quick and easy tips.

 

1. As a company owner or director, it is advisable for you to set up a completely separate profile. By doing this, if somebody does manage to access your personal account, they will not have direct access to your company page and vice versa.

 

2. If you are having somebody else manage your business profile, make sure that only the necessary administrator(s) know the password. The less people know, the less chance of your log-in details becoming compromised.

 

3. Go through all the security and privacy settings that Facebook has to offer and select those which you believe will suit your needs best. These settings allow you to restrict access from certain countries or age groups as well as restrict or allow visitors to post messages. You can also create a blocklist to automatically block posts that contain certain words you would prefer not to appear on your page.

 

4. Be careful of the various apps that you load to your page. The best bet is to set up a basic page and add apps slowly and cautiously. Check through all the information and Google the app to see what kind of reviews it has been getting. This will give you a good idea whether the app will compromise your security and if it contains any of that nasty malware.
