How the scam works:
You are online and try to access a specific website. A pop-up appears saying “Adult Content Verification”.
In a normal situation, this would be just a “press OK if you are over 18” button, but the scam is actually asking to put in your password (or sometimes other personal information). Needless to say, once you give this information away, your account is hacked and compromised.
How to avoid:
Use your judgment; a password doesn’t certify if you are an adult or not.
Make your friends and family aware of this scam by sharing it, using the buttons above.
