Recently, the facebook page of the Warren County Fourth of July Committee was taken over by unscrupulous people, due to a hacked account. Because the Fourth of July page was part of a “Facebook Business” profile, the hackers could not remove me fully. When I found out, I was able to get into the Business account, remove the hacked account & get things back to where they were.
For anyone who runs FB Pages for your business, or yourself, it’s wise to immediately remove any admin who’s facebook profile got hacked. The compromised FB account can go in & change anything and everything, and convert your page into a scam page, targeting YOUR users. If your own FB got hacked, immediately contact another admin in order to have your account removed before anything happens. Be sure that there is clear communication between all admins.
While currently, I’m the ONLY admin, I will reinstate a secondary & tertiary Admin, just in case, for whatever reason I get hacked. Be sure to choose people who know a bit about the internet, how people get hacked, and especially a bit about the Facebook Business Suite back end. It’s complicated, but it’s learnable.
Stay safe out there.
