Objectives: To analyze security awareness among social media users in Tabuk City and the relationship when grouped according to gender, educational attainment, age, and years in social media. Methods/Statistical analysis: The descriptive correlational research method was utilized to accomplish the study’s objectives. A total of 385 respondents were selected using a random sampling of Social Media Users of Tabuk City, Kalinga, Philippines. Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS) software was used in assessing the frequency and computing the collected data’s multivariate test, which determines the relationship of the respondent’s response.

The results revealed that most respondents are vulnerable to threats due to low social networking security awareness. Novelty: Social networking can be a form of data exchange that can be exploited.
