When it comes to security and privacy threats over social networks, no platform gets as much negativity as Facebook. While some of the concerns that people have about Facebook privacy are justified, some of them are not. In fact, many of the so called lax privacy concerns are just as prevalent on social networks such as Twitter as well. However, for some reason Twitter does not get classified into the same bracket as Facebook.
One reason for this is that when there are security or privacy concerns, Twitter is extremely quick to respond. Moreover, Twitter does not constantly keep chopping and changing security features with commercial goals in mind. This has usually kept Twitter away from privacy mobs. Nonetheless, this does not mean that Twitter is not vulnerable to data leakage, privacy threats, social engineering and other security concerns. Twitter also functions on ad revenue so there are ways the company monetizes its user data.
With that in mind, here are some common Twitter security tips that all Twitter users should be aware about.
Where to find the security settings on Twitter
In order to locate the security settings options on Twitter, you need to click on the gear icon in the top-right corner once you log into your Twitter account. Once this is done, you need to click on Settings.
Once this is done, you need to click on Security and Privacy in the column of options on the left side of the page. This will now open up the various options that you can alter for the security of your Twitter account.
Security settings for your Twitter account
Under the Security section, you will find various options that will allow you to maintain control over your Twitter account. Here are the options that you can control here:
Privacy settings for your Twitter account
Under this section you can change the other security settings related to your Twitter account. The options that you can manage here are:
With the help of these Twitter settings, we hope that you can make your online experience safe and secure. The settings in Twitter are not as in-depth as Facebook’s, and this makes it easier and more reliable as well. Users who spend a lot of time online should also consider using a product such as Quick Heal Total Security. Features such as Web Security and Browser Sandbox will help ensure complete protection against security threats on Twitter and other social networking sites.

i cant install dropbox in my pc.i have downloaded the dropbox installer.exe but when i click on it it does not run the installer. is due to some security feature of quick heal which doesnt allow the .exe file to run.
Do you see some message from Quick Heal when the installer has been clicked on but does not run? If not, then I don’t believe this issue is being caused by Quick Heal. You should try downloading the installer again and try running it. Let us know if it is still not working and we will come up with another solution.
