"Actors are an easy target for cyber crimes. Identity theft is common, accounts are hacked, fake accounts are made, Kritika said.
Popular for featuring in shows like ‘Kitani Mohabbat Hai’ and ‘Kuch Toh Log Kahenge’, the young actress is dependent on social media not just for staying connected to her friends and fans but also for keeping abreast on world news.
"It's the age of social media," said the 25-year-old, adding that she would never reveal her contact details online. She says it makes complete sense to bring a show like "MTV Webbed 2" on youth channel MTV in current times, when dependency on social media is at an all-time high. The show will go on air April 4.
Kritika agrees that there is a pool of advantages that the online world offers to a celebrity."It helps us to build a direct contact with our fans, and get instant feedback for our thoughts and work," said the actress.
Now she is extra careful of whom she befriends on her personal page. She says youth need to make an individual decision about where to draw the line. Suggesting her top five tips to avoid misuse of one's social networking account, she said, not all your personal information needs to be shared. It makes it easy to track you or be exploited. Be wary of sharing intimate pictures, which you think can be either misused or misinterpreted. If you make relationships and friends online, try to know the people beyond their virtual identity before baring all.
Get your account verified if you're a public figure or have a fanpage with a large following. Also be careful of checking the date stamp to see when you had logged in last. You can ensure that no one is misusing your account.
