Mum’s the word when it comes to social media

Sharing too much information online can be extremely harmful to your online security.

When you fill out an online Facebook quiz, you may be unknowingly sharing your personal information with cybercriminals. It may seem all fun and games—comparing answers among Facebook friends—but these quizzes often ask questions like where you went to elementary school, what your first car was or the name of your first pet.

Often, these same questions are used for verifying password resets or as the security questions to log into an account. Don’t pave the way on social media for cybercriminals to access your accounts.
