Tip of the Week:
Revealing Any Personal Information Can Be Dangerous. Don't Include Sensitive Information In Your Usernames.
Including sensitive information in your social media and other online account usernames could inadvertently lead to identity theft. Do not put information such as your age in your username; an identity thief could use this information to derive your date of birth. Similarly, don't reveal to the public maiden names, locations of birth or current addresses.
Phishing scams appear to originate from a trusted source to trick a user into providing information. The attacker can then use this information to access your accounts, gather additional private information about you, and make purchases or apply for credit in your name.
