Social-media hacking may be more widespread than many think.
A recent study from the University of Phoenix says almost two in three U.S. adults report having their social media accounts hacked.
Dan Conzan chairs the College of Information Systems and Technology at the school. “The actual number is difficult to know,” he said. “The adage we use is, ‘Everyone has been hacked, or don’t know that they’ve been hacked.’”
To protect yourself, Conzan said limit how much personal information you post online. Also, do not share links unless they’re from a reputable source.
The school surveyed close to 900 adults. Over 80 percent reported having at least one social media account.
