Facebook Challenges, Questionnaires Open Opportunities for Hackers

During this time of quarantine, numerous Facebook users have started to participate in Facebook challenges and questionnaires as a way to connect with others and have fun. However, what most people do not realize is that these games can actually be dangerous.

Some of the most popular Facebook challenges are:

  • Share a picture of every car you have ever owned
  • Share the maiden names of your grandmothers, mother, and your father’s last name
  • Share the name of the street you grew up on

Hackers can actually use this information to access your most important account, including subscriptions, your email accounts, and even your online banking accounts.

Here at HCN Today, we would like to encourage you NOT to participate in the challenges, as fun or inviting as they may seem. There are people out there who are watching and waiting for their next victim – we do not want that next victim to be you.
