  • Help please

    I wonder if anyone can help me please. Yesterday I was sent a message via messenger account attached to Facebook. Like an idiot I didn’t understand what the message was about and clicked on it. The picture message just appeared again as if I had responded with the same picture message. It turned out to be from a hacked Facebook account.

    I now don’t dare do internet banking because I’m scared stiff I am being watched and my passwords etc are being taken or, even if they can get them from my history. I have an Apple iPad and it is up to date with its updates. Please can someone who understands this stuff please advise me what I should or should not do. I did try to delete messenger from my iPad and apple iphone 7 but it reappeared today. I could not see all the message though.

    I know I was stupid and sorry but I am also thick when it comes to technology so any help would be gratefully received.

    If so just change your password on your facebook account

      Perfectly normal to show concern
      Top tips
      Change passwords
      Ring the bank to check for advice
      Then sleep well

          Burn the iPad immediately, and any family members who you have spoken to in the last fourteen years.

            Better off eating the iPad, and moving to a friends house in lower sackville.
