Facebook Quiz Identify Theft Risk

Alert message sent 20/05/2021 18:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Users of Facebook, please be careful about quizzes that are posted that ask you certain questions about your life, questions like your mother’s maiden name, first pets name, first car, first school you attended, name of your favourite band, city you were born, etc.
These are the questions often used by your bank or other organisations to set up your security questions for bank accounts or other important accounts.
These quizzes may seem harmless and a bit of fun but hackers can use these questions to steal your identity or build a profile and hack into your accounts.
