Many people are being the victims of hacking due to lack of knowledge about malicious links. As Facebook is one of the biggest online networks, hackers use this opportunity to hack others personal accounts and get private information. Some people do not understand how to browse no the internet. They can not differentiate the real links and the fake links. Hackers use this opportunity mostly. So, here are the list of 5 types of links that you should avoid during browsing Facebook:
1. Leaked Scandal Links:
As people always seek restricted materials, they become enthusiastic seeing a link saying “Katrina Kaif Scandal Leaked” or “Download Sunny Leone New Video”. But, what they don’t know is these are fake links. They will redirect you to the hacking web page where you might be asked to enter your Facebook Login details to get access. If you believe those words, then there is no chance of protecting your account. So, avoid these links on Facebook.
2. Change Facebook Color Links:
This one is another malicious link. If you don’t like the blue color on Facebook, message Mark Zuckerberg and ask him to change the color. But, don’t click on any link saying “Change Facebook Color” or “Activate Facebook Red” etc. It will affect you in the above-mentioned way.
3. Watch Accident Video Links:
Sometimes, you might see a video with a preview of a shocking accident. Some wired accidents may be shown as the preview of the video. Then, you may be asked to play the video to see how it happened. But, it is a malicious link. If you click on it, it will be posted automatically from your account on to your friends wall. So, be careful.
4. Free Giveaway Links:
Sometimes, there are some links saying “Get 1000 iPhones For Free” or “Samsung Galaxy S5 Free Giveaway”. These links will redirect you to a form where you will be asked to give some information. These will also harm your account. So, avoid these links.
5. Unknown Links In Inbox:
If anyone sends you an unknown link in the Facebook inbox, never click it unless you are sure about the domain. Even your friends may send this type of links. You should ask your friend twice before clicking on it.
So, being safe online only requires some special techniques. Knowing the difference between the real and fake links will save you from many hacking websites. Stay safe, avoid attracting links. Thanks for reading this post.
