Top five things which should never be shared on Facebook

London, Sept. 3 (ANI): The social media has become an integral part of everyday life but users need to be aware of what and how much they share on sites like Facebook which might be used by malicious hackers.

Those users who use the name of their pets as password for their social media account should try and avoid revealing it online and a recent research by Google indicated that 1 in 6 people use their pet's name as password.

Another of such social media shares which make a strict no-no is one's mother's maiden name, which is a security question asked by a bank and users who have their family added in their social media account should keep their privacy settings high in order to avoid any hacking, metro.co.uk reports.

Apart from mother's maiden name, security question related to first school attended can also be used as a potential tool for hacking into one's account.

The report said that revealing one's birth date is equally sensitive to be put online and if someone wants to reveal, they shouldn't mention the year.

Next comes announcing the web world about one's trip out of town or display of expensive things which might be of interest to robbers or an active GPS. (ANI)
