I clicked on the FB messenger "is this you" hack. I wasn't thinking!

Pretty soon, the damn video was sent to all FB and Messenger friends.

I changed PW for FB and Messenger and notified FB and posted a warning on FB page. And sent each friend a message not to click on the video.

Any advise? Do I download a spyware protection or what?


Iím pretty bad at tech, so please advise me like Iím a 7 year old.


Thanks in advance!!


Edit to add that I use an iPad mini.

1. Apple's security is really good ...

You didn't type in your apple user password to 'allow' anything to happen on your computer/ipad during all this, right?

If not, your computer is for sure fine.
