If you are like a lot of people nowadays, you most likely have a Facebook account. However, you may not be aware of the privacy settings that Facebook has. By default, anything you post can be seen by anyone on Facebook whether they know you or not. To change this follow these steps:
On the home page of your Facebook account select the arrow next to the home link
On the drop down menu, select Privacy Settings
To make sure that only friends can view your posts, select Friends
There are a number of other options available to you as well. Go through all of these options to ensure that information you post is not viewable by anyone you don't know.
Scammers frequently use Facebook and other social media to find their next targets. We want you to be safe out there, so take a few minutes to update your settings!
