(WTXL) — If you have ever filled out one of those online quizzes on social media about yourself, Florida authorities are urging you not do so ever again.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office is warning people to not fill out online quizzes as it can easily lead to identity theft.

Authorities say the answers to the questions, which often involves personal information about yourself, can be tied to your passwords and online security.

"We've all been enticed by these online quizzes," the Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post. "It's clever how they often are tied to our passwords and online security."
