BANDUNG - Literacy Mother of West Java Province (West Java) Atalia Ridwan Kamil said, the community must be wiser using social media so as not to harm themselves or others.
For this reason, Atalia supports the #JagaPrivasimu Seminar and Workshop which took place in the East Hall of the Bandung Sate Building, Wednesday (10/30/19). According to him, this activity aims to raise awareness, especially for social media users, to be careful in maintaining privacy.
According to Atalia, various parties have also sought security related to the use of social media, including Google.
Even so, continued Atalia, awareness as an internet user must also be increased. The #JagaPrivasimu campaign is considered appropriate to make people aware of the protection of personal data in using the internet.
"Google has done it with a variety of efforts. And the government, especially Indonesia in particular, provides a concrete and concrete steps to maintain the community related to privacy," said Atalia.
In addition, maintaining privacy is very important because the function of social media has been increased, not only used to communicate but also used to express themselves and share a moment by uploading a user's activities with selfie photos and videos.
"In relation to the privacy of these photos, we must be careful because they are easily distributed without communication. Regarding Social Media, I have also had a clone of Ibu Cinta's account, but fortunately, after there was a blue check, I know the difference, "said Atalia, who is familiarly called Ibu Cinta.
Atalia also added, the security password (password) is also very important so it is recommended to use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols, and use a different password for each social media.
Atalia advised, internet users do not open links haphazardly, do not share locations, use private mode on social media, select friend requests, and do not connect social media with other social media.
"Therefore, it is very important that we protect personal data to avoid theft and use passwords that are not easily accessed. One of them is the arrangement of letters that are mixed," said Atalia.
"Let's be wise in social media, hopefully what is conveyed makes our eyes and insights open so that we become news literate and obey the rules and maintain our privacy. Then hopefully the friends in attendance can also share the security of social media, "he concluded.
