VIDEO: Why you should never throw away or post your boarding pass online!

While a boarding pass is known to contain the name of the passenger, flight number, destination, seat number and gate number, the bar code on it contains much more.
As evidenced in the video below, forensic expert - Winston Krone revealed that hackers can easily steal one's name, home address, email address, phone number, and gain access to ones financial details just by scanning the bar code.

Keep in mind, the hacker can use his/her cell phone, and the code can also be scanned from a picture. So the next time you get your ticket for that vacation and post it online, someone can easily steal your information.
