Fun-sounding quizzes are all over social media. Reporter Allison Gormley and our partners at WINK in Fort Myers, Florida caution that you may want to think twice before filling one out. Many of these will ask you for information like names of your grandparents, the street you grew up on, or the names of your pets. The problem is these are also the sorts of questions that are used for security to reset your passwords for online services. Hackers know this and can use these services to get this information, cross-reference it with your name or other identifying info they can find, and use it to hack into your accounts. Your best bet is to make things harder for hackers and avoid these quizzes altogether.
