The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned Nigerians against accessing their social media accounts with the Virtual Private Network.

 

Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe in a statement released on Tuesday June 8, said those using VPN should desist in their own interests because of its risks which include data theft, illegal access to strategic company documents and possible economic espionage.

 

Akpanudoedehe said;

 

ďThis advisory is necessary because, despite the massive compliance by Nigerians to the federal governmentís suspension of Twitter operations in the country, some individuals in the country have resorted to VPN to assess Twitter whose unwholesome activities were detrimental to peace and public order in the country.

ďThose using the VPN are advised to desist in their own interests because of its risks, which include data theft, illegal access to strategic company documents and possible economic espionage.

ďThe APC emphasises that VPN users expose their devices to vulnerabilities because the network allows third parties access to personal data and changes user location to another country which compromises data integrity.

ďYour record can be traced to another country that is not yours, with all the risks that entail.

ďMany individuals and organisations using VPN have lost their investments after compromising the security of their devices.

ďThe APC strongly advises that Nigerians should avoid installing or using VPN to access social networking sites in order to protect their privacy and security online.

ďThis is in our individual and collective interest."
