It is true that social media have captured the world! There are social networking sites that have millions of members, which allow their members to share their photos, videos, messages at any time and time!
In fact, social media today account for about 80 percent of the time someone spends on the internet. We are (almost) all members of Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or have other social media accounts and ... .. these accounts are often prone to hacking.
What did you just say? And what about it ?!
One of the main reasons for hacking your social media accounts is losing the password. Hackers gain access to your account by getting your code through regular social engineering or other attack methods. These risks result from innocent trollings for entertainment purposes, to very serious ones, such as serious damage to one's reputation, financial problems, even legal prosecution if a hacked account is used to commit a crime.

Therefore, protecting your social media accounts is very important, and so I will introduce you to five simple and functional software tools that can offer you some degree of social media protection:
LastPass is a free password management service that stores encrypted cloud passwords. The service is able to save existing passwords as well as create new ones. It provides two-factor authentication, and the only password to remember the user is the master password for LastPass itself.
LogDog is a free product designed to track any suspicious activity associated with your social media accounts. The system continuously detects various unauthorized access indicators. When an attack is detected, LogDog sends intrusion notifications and allows users to get back their account checks. Currently, it is only available for Android devices.
3) HTTPS Everywhere
If you share with others the devices used to access your social media accounts, or often go with them in public places, it is better to protect them with an extra security layer of traffic encryption. HTTPS Everywhere is a free browser extension that converts webpages from HTTP (unsecured) to HTTPS (secured).

4) AVG PrivacyFix
AVG PrivacyFix is a free application that helps users to customize Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and Twitter privacy settings, and blocks unwanted tracking. It's currently available for Chrome, Android, and iOS.
5) Digi.me (formerly SocialSafe)
Another free tool, Digi.me, is designed to store social media data if all information is lost as a result of hacking. It allows you to back up and view content from up to four of your social media accounts.
