Excellent informative video produced by CyberNews.  Digital identity theft is a form of digital fraud, where a criminal not only steals your data but also impersonates you with it. Impersonators then proceed to use stolen Social Security numbers, passports, or bank details to do whatever they want. Statistics show that active social media users are 30% more likely to fall prey to identity fraud. Those with Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram accounts have that number at 46%. With their personally identifiable information on the surface, it’s easy to steal it and assume the identity of the victim. This is why data theft targets this information first. Fraudsters don’t even need that much info to go with. Any two or three out of this list will already allow them to figure out most of the data about you.
