Security Housekeeping for Facebook

Cybersecurity is one of the most important things to be aware of when setting up and managing your Facebook accounts. Detecting and preventing fraud on your account should be taken seriously and it is vital that you adopt measures that will reduce the risk of hacking and cyber-attacks. Here are some things you can do to protect your Meta account and page.

Strong Password

Create a strong password for your Facebook account that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess. Do not include personal information in your password like your name, phone number, email address, or commonly used words.

Two-factor Authentication

One of the best ways to further secure and protect your account is by enabling two-factor authentication. You should require all employees that have access to your account to enable two-factor authentication. You will be asked to enter a code or confirm your login each time, this will help protect your account from unauthorised users and hackers. Here’s how to set up two-factor authentication. We would also recommend you sign up to get alerts when someone attempts to log in from a device Meta does not recognise.

Login Details

Do not share login information with your Facebook account. Be careful of scammers creating fake websites and asking you to share or log in with your Facebook details. Do not forward emails from Meta to others that may contain sensitive information about your Facebook account.

Review Page Roles and Permissions

It's best to use a work email address while setting up a Facebook page for your hotel so that no personal Facebook pages are linked to it. Once you are set up as an owner, you can then grant access to other employees. Ideally, you should have multiple administrators in case one of them leaves the company - but admins should only really be those who help to manage and monitor your activity.

It is vital that you adopt these measures in order to keep your Facebook account and pages secure.
