Don’t respond to quizzes or polls on Facebook

Facebook quizzes might be a fun time at the moment, but they’re also a commonly exploited scam for cybercriminals. Hackers use these questionnaires as data gathering tools by asking you to provide personal or demographic information that helps them answer password hints. By first creating a fake account and using automation to gain followers, they then start creating quizzes based on their observations. And even worse? They often ask you to leave your answers in the comment section where anybody can see them. It’s best to ignore these opportunities and keep your information to yourself.
