Social media quizzes can provide important info to cyber criminals

However tempting it may be to share these details…don’t…:

[…] “You always want to be careful on the information you share and the information you give to others. It’s going to be awkward for a stranger to come up to you and ask, ‘hey, what was the make and color of the first car you owned?’ But you’ll share that on Facebook in a heartbeat,” Hodges said.

Think back to the last online account you opened. Do you remember answering questions like, what was your high school mascot? Or, the name of your best friend when you were a kid?

Those are the answers you use if you forgot your password. They’re also the same type of questions on seemingly innocent surveys on social media.
