Facebook and Twitter... just when we thought we were safe.....I read an article on PCPitstop newsletter that the bad guys are getting into those accounts also.....and we thought it was just email..


From what I understand they pose as a notice from Twitter or facebook and tell you to change your password.....we have all gotten those emails from time to time telling us that we should do that... well NEVER change your password unless you change it by going to the site and change it yourself.....through HELP.....


I would suppose that you have to write down your password as it is now and the one you want to change to and then they have your real password.....


So don't do it same as with phone calls don't give info to the caller unless you call them......


 


There is nothing like home for the Holidays.

 


Have a nice day !.
