I WAS HACKED!! - How To Prevent Yourself Getting Hacked - Life Of A YouTuber Vlog - Ep 7

in life •  last year

In this Life Of A YouTuber Vlog episode, I share my experience of being hacked and I share some tips that will help you learn how to prevent yourself getting hacked as well.

If you're a YouTuber, streamer or you want to become a public figure in any way then you NEED to watch this video. You could be a target for hackers so learning how to make it hard for hackers to get access to your accounts is extremely important.

I was hacked because my online security was lax. I was far too comfortable with using similar passwords for all my accounts since it had never caused me any problems before. But that ignorance and laziness was ultimately my downfall, getting hacked really gave me a kick in the ass and inspired me to upgrade my security properly.

Hello & Cheers!! I'm a content detection and information bot. You are receiving this reply because a short link or links have been detected in your post/comment. The purpose of this message is to inform your readers and yourself about the use of and dangers of short links.

To the readers of the post: Short links are provided by url shortening services. The short links they provide can be useful in some cases. Generally their use is benign. But as with all useful tools there are dangers. Short links can be used to hide all sorts of things. Quite frequently they are used to hide referral links for instance. While not dangerous this can be deceptive. They can also be used to hide dangerous links such as links to phishing sites, sites loaded with malware, scam sites, etc. You should always be extremely cautious before clicking on one. If you don't know and trust the poster don't click. Even if you do you should still be cautious and wary of any site you are sent to. It's always better to visit the site directly and not through a short link.

To the author of the post: While short links may be useful on some sites they are not needed on steemit. You can use markdown to format your links such as this link to steemit. It's as simple as [steemit](https://steemit.com) Unlike short links this allows the reader to see where they are going by simply hovering over the link before they click on it.

This message was created by a bot. It is part of the ongoing fight against spam and phishing attacks on steemit. If you did not use short links in your post and feel you have received this message in error you can contact @fubar-bdhr on discord or @fubar.bdhr on steemit chat to report the issue.

I used to be a little bit worried about it but i honestly thought it would never happen to ME! Make sure you're doing as much as you can to stay safe online. It's even more important for public figures like YouTubers and streamers! Get those passwords changed and secure ASAP!
