A very common social media attack on Facebook is people copying Facebook profiles and then messaging all the friends of that profile to ask for money and other things. Believe it or not this works. Also, once your friends unknowingly accept the friend request, then often the Facebook CopyCat will copy all of their friends lists also and do the same to them.
It is also very easy to prevent by changing your privacy settings so that that strangers can not see your friend list. If they can’t see who your friends are, then they wont take the time to copy your profile as there is no way to make any money off it.
So here are your four steps to a more secure Facebook profile.
Go to your Facebook profile
2. Go to your friends list
3. Edit the privacy settings for your friends list by clicking here.
4. Change your settings to only let friends and yourself see your friends list or only yourself. Then click done.
Now sit back and relax. There is now no reason for someone to copy your profile as they don’t have any people to ask for money once they copy it.
