A cybersecurity expert has warned people against taking part in the ‘Get to Know Me’ Instagram trend. Eliana Shiloh, a cyber and strategic risk analyst at Deloitte, has raised concerns that participating in the trend could expose personal information that hackers could use to their advantage. Shiloh highlighted that many of the questions in the template align with popular security questions, making it easier for hackers to access accounts. She also mentioned that sharing personal information on social media can make it easier for people to figure out the answers to security questions. Despite the warning, some social media users have dismissed the concerns, stating that their answers to the template questions do not align with their security questions. However, the expert’s advice serves as a reminder to be cautious about sharing personal information online.
