Say No to Facebook Quizzes and FaceApp…
I see a lot of my friends on Facebook taking these “quizzes” for fun and sharing or the new FaceApp. What people do not realize is that these little games are designed to steal your information and the FaceApp is taking the photos for facial recognition.
Recent quizzes have included concerts that you have attended or places you have visited, the name of the street you grew up on or what you favorite book is. This information is commonly used as the answers to your security questions not only on Facebook but, for all your online activities.
Remember when you set up your bank account app online or your iTunes account? It had you give answers to security questions in case of a forgotten password or PIN number. That is what these quizzes are for. They match your name, email address and answers to your security questions and they can take over your online life.
Please do not answer and share these questions. They can also download a list of all your contacts so that they may try to get their information as well. It could be very costly not only to you but, all of your friends. Just remember, if it is free and it is fun, there is some other motive behind it.
