Yes, even your photos should be on quarantine these days.
There is no doubt that the increased usage of digital files made the average 21st century human being to be dependent on digital data, and in the process allow data breaches to happen every now and then. In fact, recent studies showed a drastic increase in cyber crime activities in the US-- from 157 million in 2005 to 1.47 billion in 2019.
65% of these data breach incidents have been attributed to identity theft, specifically since hackers today have a buffet of photos to steal from on the Internet. Social media corporations do not help much either…. they even made things worse by being careless with their users´ data.
Even Facebook, widely regarded as one of the most popular social media platforms today, admitted in 2018 that it accidentally leaked the private data of its 6.8 million users to third-party apps. If you don't protect yourself, you might be the next one to get Zucc-ed into darkness.
