Forgetting to log out of your social media account on a shared computer can lead to an embarrassing Facebook status update from one of your mischievous friends. Sometimes, they're so out of character that others can tell your account has been hijacked by a friend, but other times it's not so obvious, which is truly embarrassing.

In order to put a stop to this, security and alarm company Comansegur developed the 'Socialjacking Alarm,' a Chrome add-on that protects against this kind of behavior. When suspicious social media activity is detected, the Socialjacking Alarm is set off, prompting users to input a pin before they can continue with that post or photo upload. This is a clever way to show that the brand is invested in your personal security, even if it is for what happens to be shared on Facebook.
