Kevin Tharp, Professor at UW Stout, shared this information on a community Facebook page:
You've seen it over and over again, someone posting about how their account has been "hacked". I had a friend get cloned this morning and decided to write an article to help people to avoid getting cloned and take control of your own internet data. The article is linked below, and it includes videos I use in my classes at Stout that has them do a "Cross Platform Privacy Checkup". I encourage everyone to take a look and learn how to take control of your own data, so you and your friends are less likely to get cloned.
The article can be found here.
