As the internet of things permeates more aspects of life, the desire to access one's social network from whatever connected device available will become a requirement. Cloud-based personal data, remotely accessible from any connected device is evitable. This paper offers a solution to secure and assessable private social networks by creating a "Security box" on which a private social network can provide safely distributed access. This access is managed, yet interactions are not burdened by onerous rules and membership overhead, that plague many private networks.
