Cyber Crimes Unit of the Public Security Directorate (PSD) warned social media platform users of publishing what may embarrass and expose them to blackmail.

Through a recent post on its Facebook official page, the Cyber Crimes Unit stated the following:

  • Remember that protecting your personal information on social media platforms is your own responsibility. You can decide whether to share it with the others or make it private.
  • Your decision of sharing your own photos and information can make you a victim of cybercrime.
  • Do not publish what could embarrass you, otherwise you can be exposed to blackmail.
  • Do not share your personal information or secrets with social media friends, and remember that they are strangers.
