It's World Password Day and no better day to check your endless amount of passwords for apps, social media accounts and websites to see how safe they are. One woman who learned the hard way is Niamh Martin and she joined Mairead on the show.
Niamh and her husband Brian run Nima Brush, an award-winning company that sells make up brushes. Like many small businesses, they rely a lot on social media to spread the word and attract customers.
On Monday evening, Niamh got an email saying her Instagram account was being verified, but she realised too late that this wasn't a legitimate email and hackers managed to get into her account and lock her out of it.
They were demanding $900 to release it, which Niamh did consider paying with all the time and work that went in to building up the page over the past 8 years, but the account was wiped. Niamh said "It was like somebody came in a burned down my business".
She has started a new page for Nima Brush, and wants to remind everyone to be so careful with all of your accounts and any emails you might get that ask for your personal information.
