Participating in the latest photo challenge is all fun and games until someone gets hacked. The Better Business Bureau has issued a warning about sharing photos and personal information along with hashtags on social media.

Believe me, I had any senior pictures, I would have already posted mine, complete with the hashtag. Doing things like that on social media can make it easier for hackers to find out personal information about you and your family.

Here are some tips from the BBB to keep your social media accounts safe:

Resist the temptation to play along. While it’s fun to see other’s posts, if you are uncomfortable participating, it is best to not do it.

Review your security settings. Check your security settings on all social media platforms to see what you are sharing and with whom you are sharing.

Change security questions/settings. If you are nervous about something you shared possibly opening you up to fraud, review and change your security settings for banking and other websites.

Facebook quizzes can also give would-be hackers an invitation into your life.
