“To my friends on [F]acebook, PLEASE REPORT my [F]acebook account,” she said. “It was hacked and I no longer have access to my page.”

Prior to losing control of her Facebook page, she pointed out that the “heartless person” had also seized her Twitter account. The hacker did not stop there, and attempted to access Manalo’s Instagram profile as well until 7:30 a.m. today. However, Manalo was able to protect her Instagram page before the unknown person could gain control of it.

She then appealed to her followers to protect their own profiles, saying, “Guys please secure your accounts. Make sure you turn ON your Two-factor authentication. Be safe everyone.”

Two-factor authentication is a security feature that helps protect your social media account in addition to your password, according to Facebook. Once this feature is set up, you will be asked to enter a special login code or confirm your login attempt whenever someone tries to access your account from a device not recognized by the social media platform.  /ra
