Pro-ISIS Telegram Channel Urges Supporters To Take Precautions When Using Phones, Social Media

March 16, 2023

A pro-Islamic State (ISIS) Telegram channel published a series of posts urging supporters to take certain precautions while using social media accounts, citing the case of a supporter who was recently arrested after failing to exercise caution while using her phone.

The channel described a cautionary take of a woman who "posted under her personal name photos from her phone and around her house." At the same time, the post continued, "she was sharing sensitive ideological content and statements on behalf of the organization," presumably referencing ISIS.

Even though the woman's husband took preventive measures, including using a fake account, he was arrested as well. The admin warned supporters that reckless acts could endanger not only themselves but also others.

In a later post, the channel recommended several security precautions, such as using two separate phones.
