Social Media PSA

Tech Tip Image
As you may be aware, some social media posts ask questions such as:  Who was your first grade teacher? Who was your childhood best friend? What was your first car? Etc. These are the same kind of questions that are asked as security questions when setting up your bank accounts and credit card accounts.  Does this seem to you there could be malicious intent behind these?  Indeed there is.  

Hackers are setting these questions up as a get to know each other better game.  If you answer these questions you might be giving out answers to security questions that you might be using without realizing it.

The Bottom Line:
The internet can be a dangerous place and social media is no exception.  Keep your guard up and if you are in doubt, scroll on by and donít engage.
