Can Posting My Personal Information To Social Media Be Dangerous!

The inter­net has been called the infor­ma­tion super­high­way. But scam­mers, hack­ers, and oth­er crooks are steal­ing your per­son­al infor­ma­tion.  So it’s a great idea to know how to lock down your devices, your net­work and your per­son­al infor­ma­tion. Yet, many hap­py social media enthu­si­asts don’t real­ize that through their social media post­ings, they are giv­ing away TONS of per­son­al infor­ma­tion that can be used by scam­mers.

For exam­ple, how many times have you used the below infor­ma­tion as a secu­ri­ty ques­tion and/or pass­word: • Mother’s maid­en name. • Name of ele­men­tary school you attend­ed • Name of high school you attend­ed • Name of street you grew up on • Name of your first-grade teacher • City you grew up in.

Unwit­ting­ly many inno­cent vic­tims are feed­ing this infor­ma­tion direct­ly to scam­mers via their online post­ings. But you will be shocked how many peo­ple will will­ing­ly give their per­son­al infor­ma­tion to a stranger…even right on the street! Take a look at our video and see just how eas­i­ly peo­ple on the street do it. It is shock­ing! We want to thank the folks at Jim­my Kim­mel live for the use of their man-on-street footage.
