Facebook phishing is an awful thing. The amount of information that is exposed and the damage that it can do to a person’s life can be just as devastating as it is frightening. If you’re not careful, the information you share on social media can be exploited by fraudsters and criminals. It’s not only the information itself that can be easily accessed, it’s the location that can be as well.

On Facebook for example, if you log into your account there you can see a map of your location. If you have your location set to a fake address, someone can then find your location in the same way that a cyber criminal can find your location on Facebook.

The bad guys know exactly where you are, and are using that information to get you to open up a fake Facebook account. It’s the same exact process described in the phishing phishing article.

Facebook will not let you go to your privacy settings to change your location. But, if you look at your profile, you can change your location. So if you use your Facebook account to search for locations and choose a different address, the phishing attempt will still be successful.

Facebook has a security feature that will keep your location from being seen by people who are not your friends. (Which is why you need to set up a fake Facebook account to get Facebook to see where you are). However, if you don’t have a Facebook account, you can click here to create one and your location will not be seen, because they don’t have the proper location settings.

Not all phishing attempts are malicious, but they can still be a threat to your identity. Many phishing attempts are just trying to use your location to impersonate you. Some people are so lazy that they just click links in the hopes that they are clicking on a link that will take them somewhere that they will be able to see other people (not your friends) on. This can still pose a threat to your identity, but it’s less likely.

Social media phishing has become a big problem in the last five years. When you login to your Facebook account, you are actually logging into your online account and not your real-life one. It has become the norm for people to create fake people they are pretending to be friends with on Facebook. This is because it is a way for them to connect with other people, but it can also be used to get your information if you’re not careful.

In the current online world, social media has become a place many people will go to to pretend to be someone they aren’t. In a way, it is like phishing. However, unlike phishing, social media phishing is more easily thwarted if you know exactly what you are doing.

To be honest, I was surprised by the number of people who phished to get information about how to fix a computer, how to create a new user account, and so on. But it is a problem all the same.

One of the most popular phishing techniques is to set up a fake account that will gain access to a specific website. Then, instead of showing up as you would have in the real world, you’ll be using a fake name, username, and password. Then, to get you to believe you’re a real person, you’ll send a link to the site you want to get you information to. It is this method that phishers use to get information from sites.
