Beware of such people on social media

For the past few days, individuals/criminal groups have been misusing technology and adopting various trends through social media to commit online fraud day by day. In view of this situation, the Cyber Bureau has been requested to be aware of such cheating trends.

The bureau has requested people to be aware of people who are lured by a friend who is only known online to send them a gift and who ask for money under the pretext of tax to receive the gift. Similarly, if you get an online lottery ticket in your name, you should be careful of those who ask you to pay tax to get the said lottery ticket.

You should also be wary of people who gain access to the social network account and identify the close friends of the social network user and demand money under various pretexts. Also, as there are some people asking for OTP by saying that they have sent the necessary code number from the social network of their friends, and withdrawing money from the account of the respective account holder, he has requested them not to give their OTP code even if asked.

In the situation where the cases of keeping goods for sale cheaply online and sending the same, not collecting the money and not delivering the goods in advance, and opening bank accounts under various pretexts through social media and taking details such as ATM card, OTP, etc., one should be aware of such people. There are also people demanding money on social media saying that they will make the video viral on various platforms. The bureau has asked not to trust any such unknown person.

In addition to this, the bureau has also requested people who ask for money to be aware that if they invest in cryptocurrencies or bitcoins, which are banned in the country, the financial benefits will double immediately.

Manage Facebook memories

Every year, Facebook reminds you of what you have posted in the past through memories. You might not be able to get away from Facebook because of this feature. But when all your data is downloaded, such old photos and videos are also downloaded. Due to this, you don't have to worry much about the contents coming into your memory. If you have downloaded your file, Facebook will manage the photos and videos you have uploaded in the same file. So that even after deleting Facebook, you can get all those files through your downloaded Facebook data.

Check where Facebook is logged in

We have logged into many apps using Facebook account. Some of them may have our important files stored in specific apps (Photoshop, e-commerce site, video editing site, game like PUBG or Freefire). Also see how important the sites you are logged into are. Go to the settings of Facebook and select the 'App and Website' option to see which site the account is logged into. If there are unnecessary sites, log out of your account on all of them.

How to view locked Facebook profiles?

Some users keep their profile locked on Facebook.

Photos of such profiles cannot be viewed normally.

We all wonder who the person who locked the profile is. Clicking on the profile shows that 'This profile is locked'.

But it is possible to know who the person of such locked profile is.

For this, first go to the locked profile where you want to see the photo. Then right click on the profile photo and inspect it.

After inspecting in this way, click on Select.

Then point the mouse cursor to the profile photo.

Copy the corresponding element of the photo that appears on the side when pointing it.

Paste the copied element in any text editor (Notepad, Msword).

Then delete the text before https.

Copy the deleted text again and paste it in the browser.

After doing this, it will show you the respective person's photo in a separate tab.

This way you can see the locked profile photo. However, it is better not to look at locked profiles as the subject of privacy has been raised.
