MocoSpace is a so called mobile social networking website. What this means is that it is primarily designed for mobile access and not computer desktop access.
Another interesting aspect of MocoSpace is the fact that it is open for anyone regardless of their cell phone brand and carrier.
The service provided is similar to that of other social networking websites. MocoSpace users can chat, blog, upload photos and videos, use instant messaging, play games, use apps or participate in the forums.
Its mobile approach makes the site less susceptible to phishing and other forms of attack but it is still a good idea to protect the MocoSpace account from third parties. The same anti-phishing rules apply for MocoSpace than for any other popular website with user accounts:
These rules are:
Also, remember to sign out of the account whenever you use a computer that others have access to.
We suggest to use a password manager like Last Pass if you access MocoSpace with your desktop computer or mobile browser if LastPass is available for it as well.
MocoSpace have published safety tips on their website which are a good read as well although they are more aimed at personal safety than MocoSpace account safety.
Protect your privacy - NEVER give out personal details such as your last name, phone number, address, email or any other types of identifying information.
People may lie about their identity. Be careful of interactions with strangers. Do not engage in any conversations or activities that make you uncomfortable. Trust your instincts.
NEVER, under any circumstances, agree to meet someone in real life that you have met online.
