Social media is a huge part of daily life. In fact, you probably use Facebook. What you may not realize, is that what you post may be used by debt collectors. These debt collectors may even go as far as contacting your friends and family to get to you. It is important to update your privacy settings to give you and your family the most protection.

How to Update Your Facebook Settings

  • First, click on the Account tab (upper right corner on the home page) and click Privacy Settings.
  • Next, select the “Connecting on Facebook” tab. Click the “Friends Only” for all the listed settings to avoid debt collectors using Facebook against you.
  • Finally, look at your “Sharing on Facebook” settings as well. Be sure that you have these set to the people you want to see your photos, status updates, etc.

Remember, Facebook changes its privacy policy frequently.  Be sure to check your Facebook settings regularly.
