“Several cases of penetration and hacking of social media accounts on “Snapchat” are being carefully followed up," the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science announced on the Ministry of Interior’s official social media accounts.

The General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science said noted that the department discovered forged links sent by hackers to victims’ accounts asking for the password to obtain new filters. He assured that these were hackers aiming to penetrate accounts.

The General Directorate called on all not to give away passwords or use them in unofficial sites received through any social media accounts. He advised activating two-step verification of the accounts for further protection.
