JAKARTADAILY.ID – The era of globalization has made social media one thing that cannot be separated from people's lives.

Accessing social media seems to have become a necessity. Therefore, it is very important for people to care about maintaining the security of social media accounts.

Currently, cases of hacking into social media accounts by hackers often occur.

The cause of this social media account breach is not only hackers who are capable of breaking in, but there are mistakes made by users.

A spokesperson for the National Cyber ​​and Crypto Agency (BSSN) Ariandi Putra said the hacking of social media accounts was an example of a security threat to digital devices.

He also shared 8 types of cyber security threats that people need to be aware of.

First, is data leakage. Where, a number of applications can access data on the user's cellphone, such as contacts, storage, camera, and so on.

This can be a loophole for hackers to break into data on a user's cellphone.

"Therefore, always be careful when installing applications on our cellphones and pay attention to the requested access," said Ariandi, Tuesday, December 6, 2022.

Second, Wi-Fi interference. Ariandi said public and free Wi-Fi services available in many places are often used by the public to connect to the internet.

However, many do not know whether the network is safe or not.

"If connected to public Wi-Fi, avoid entering sensitive info or making financial transactions that require data, such as credit cards or banking transactions," he advised.
