I have found a lot of messages asking me to click on a link to get more followers, you may have received some too, but don’t click on the links!

Make sure your passwords are strong and don’t post anything personal.

If you find any messages asking to click on a link, spam them right away and permanently bin them. If someone asks you for any personal info, don’t answer and spam them.

Stay safe everyone and share this post to alert…

      The article is saying that an attack took place on some WordPress sites. I wouldn’t worry overly Lorraine, but its worth keeping a sharp eye out for any strange comments/people contacting you asking for information. I’m sure you wouldn’t click on any dodgy links anyway. Best, Kevin

        Thanks Kevin. I have loads of Spam comments wanting me to click on links. I never click on any of them. Many of them seem to think I want sex toys 😀

      I agree with you Eric as regards it seeming a little odd. However the site carrying the report is, so far as I am aware a reputable source of information. In any case, stay safe online! All the best, Kevin
