Millions of people use a variety of social media accounts and networks on a daily basis. The increasing use of technology is also increasing the risk of cyber crime and identity theft. Being cautious and developing safe social media habits is more important than ever. Not only are adults and teens being targeted on social media, but so are children. Many children today either have access to social media accounts or their photographs are being posted on some form of social media. Photographs, especially those of children, can be easily stolen through social networks for various inappropriate functions. A photograph is just one form of identification that can fall into the wrong hands through social media. Identity theft is a serious crime and ruins hundreds of lives each year. You may want to consider hiring professional identity theft protection services.
