Delving into social media account security raises interesting concerns. Many believe that their online engagements are shielded, particularly when accessed from a safeguarded environment, like an office, or through devices that demand authentication. However, a common oversight, especially in the realm of social media, is that not every person you connect with – for instance, a colleague or friend – maintains the same security rigour you do. This could inadvertently expose your profile to prying eyes. It’s a golden rule: treat all content shared across social media platforms as if it’s in the public domain. OPSINT specialises in procuring open-source data, which notably comprises the vast bulk of emails and social media profiles. Understandably, this task becomes exponentially easier (and less costly) if one is armed with the specific username and password!
