An important message from Cyber Protect about your social media accounts. This information is worth passing on to friends and family and indeed your social media contacts.

🤔How do criminals hack into social media accounts? Here's one way...


 â„šī¸ You'll receive a text like this from someone claiming they have accidentally sent their verification code to your number. You might even receive these messages from friends or family members


 âŒ If you share the code, it'll allow the criminals to login to your account.


 âœ… Never share verification codes... with anyone! *It's not really your friend or family member sending you the message, their account has been hacked and the hacker is impersonating them. #CyberProtect
