6 Year Old Hacks Mom’s Amazon Account, Buys $250 In Pokemon Toys
You might think your thumbprint is the safest way to protect your online accounts.
Today's kids are very resourceful. A 6-year-old Arkansas girl used her sleeping mother's thumb to unlock her Amazon account and order herself some Christmas gifts. Ashlynd Howell of Little Rock bought herself $250.00 worth of Pokemon toys!
USA Today reports she expressed great pride in her actions when confronted by her parents after they received multiple confirmation emails. When asked if the purchases were accidental, the 6 year old replied,"No, Mommy, I was shopping."
Think passwords are a better idea? Maybe. My 10-year-old grandson is better at remembering them than I am.
