Stop Hackers From Hijacking Your Social Media Accounts


Social media hackers use a wide variety of tools to highjack social media accounts so they can embarrass brands, distribute malware, and more.

This presents a unique challenge. You need an understanding of both security and marketing to protect your brand’s social media presence. The solution is simple: Proofpoint Social Media Security.

Lock Your Social Media Profiles

After taking over your account, social media hackers often alter your profile – the logo, header image, and description.

Our social media security and patented ProfileLock™ technology takes a snapshot of approved account profile settings and constantly monitors for any unauthorized changes. In the event of an unauthorized change, Social Patrol instantly sends you an alert and can optionally lock down the account.

Watch the demo video to see how ProfileLock continually monitors your brand's social media accounts for hacks and tampering, and automatically locks your accounts to stop social media hackers, fraud, and abuse.

Remove Social Media Hacker-Posted Content

Once they have hacked your account, attackers can immediately publish malicious content on behalf of your brand. The goal may be to tarnish your brand reputation or to trick your followers into clicking malware or phishing links. 

SocialPatrol analyses your posts and publishing behaviours for malicious content or unexpected changes that indicate a hack. Log, notify, and delete actions are triggered based on your settings.

Enforce Publishing Workflow

Perhaps you have deployed a publishing tool and have a social media content review workflow. However, social media hackers can bypass your workflow by posting from the Web or other apps that have access to your accounts. 

Social Patrol enforces your content publishing workflow, so your accounts only accept content from authorized publishing applications. This dramatically reduces your social attack surface and account hijack risk.
