Need a little awareness Here are some things to keep in mind when you survey:
Whether the site you are surveying is trustworthy
🎯 Whether the organization is trustworthy even if it is Google Docs
🎯 Whether it wants your personal information like name, address, phone number etc.
🎯 Whether it is seeking information about your personal and family life
Whether it's asking for your bank account information or social media password related information
🎯 That is the answer to some common questions, such as your father's name Father's birthplace 6 Or look for the girl's name, her birthday date, etc., because these can also be used to recover passwords.
