With the announcement of a dislike button coming to Facebook, people were rejoicing.
But the announcement was just that – an announcement. The button isn’t available yet, and if you think you’ve downloaded it, you better change your passwords now.
Hackers around the world have designed a scam that targets your personal information and account details – all through a fake dislike button scam.
The scam is currently going around Facebook and promises access to the dislike button early. All you have to do is click.
Once you’ve clicked (please, please don’t click) it takes you to a page that looks like this:
People who are desperate for the dislike button then must share the link on their wall and with five friends over Messenger before they’re asked to complete a survey which steals their personal information and account data. Then the scammers spam all your contacts with viruses. Good luck trying to explain that one to your boss.
Pass this on, share the message, etc. The Facebook dislike button doesn’t exist yet, and any link that tells you it does is not legit.
Do not click.
