Being Hacked totally sucks. No doubt.

 

But let’s now act as quickly as possible to minimise the damages of the hack.

The guide is divided in three simple steps.

Stop the Hacker

Enhance protection

How where you hacked

 

Take a deep breath, and let’s go![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”1766″ img_size=”full” css_animation=”bounceInDown”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]Please choose the account that was Hacked, it will redirect you to the official support page.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”1771″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” css_animation=”bounceInUp” link=”https://www.facebook.com/hacked”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”1772″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” css_animation=”bounceInUp” link=”https://help.instagram.com/368191326593075″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”1773″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” css_animation=”bounceInUp” link=”https://help.twitter.com/en/safety-and-security/twitter-account-hacked”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Once you do that come back for the next step.

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1775″ img_size=”full” css_animation=”bounceInDown”][vc_column_text css_animation=”none”]Ok phew, you got rid of the Hacker.
Now let’s make his life more difficult.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1779″ img_size=”full” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” css_animation=”bounceInUp” link=”https://www.turnon2fa.com”][vc_column_text css_animation=”none”]

Enable additional protection with 2FA.
It’s free.

Here’s a handy guide.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Once you do that come back for the last step.

Now it’s time to understand how did the Hacker get my data.

In most cases, it is due to data found in massive data breaches.
There is a free tool to check if you where ever hacked.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”1815″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” css_animation=”bounceInDown” link=”https://haveibeenpwned.com”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]So if you have been part in a data breach always ensure that you change not only the password that got hacked but also to any other services you used the same password.
