Olmsted County Sheriff’s Department Issues Warning For All Social Media Users
Everybody is spending a lot more time at home these days and everyone is bored out of their minds. I get it. You're probably spending more time on social media and you've probably seen posts from others about 10 jobs they've had or 10 bands they've seen. Seem innocent, right? Not so fast my friend. All of that information you share is out there for anyone to use however they want and the Olmsted Co. Sheriff's Department wants you to know that some will use that info to hack your accounts.
Have you ever had to answer security questions when logging into your bank account? The questions are always things like "what street did you grow up on" or "what was your first concert" or "who was your favorite athlete as a kid". Don't make it easy for scammers to answer these questions or figure out your passwords. Be careful what you post online.
