This is why online users should be careful about the information they are giving out in some quizzes. Some quizzes may be fun, but the questions asked by them can also be used against them. This is because the information collected can be used to create a profile of them, which can reveal the answers to their security questions for their online accounts, if the information falls into the wrong hands.
