With over 3 billion internet users around the globe totaling roughly 40 percent of the population, the internet is rife with opportunities for hackers to steal your information. And with technology constantly evolving and the internet growing, it’s not likely to get safer anytime soon.

But as technology has evolved, there’s a new type of stranger lurking in the shadows who may still pose threats to even us grown-ups.
