“Twilight” fans should be on the lookout today as a Facebook scam advertising a fake game based on the upcoming movie “Twilight: Breaking Dawn.”
According to online security firm Sophos, the game advertisement takes you to a fake page with a “Play Now” button. If you click through all the prompts, the fake game will post a message saying you “Like” the game to your wall, tag you in pictures and take your personal information.
As always, it’s important to be aware of what you’re agreeing to before you get too click-happy. Don’t click on suspicious links, don’t give out your personal info to suspicious apps and it can’t hurt to clear out your authorized applications list from time to time.
