Social media hacking is a very common issue and celebrities often become an easy victim to this. In the past, we have seen many Bollywood and TV actors raising concerns over this issue, but the hacking doesn’t seem to end. The latest to join this list is actor Sudhanshu Pandey.
Sudhanshu, who is currently accolading praises for his show Anupama had recently started enjoying the social media space, but unfortunately, this enjoyment has met with a hindrance.
According to reports in Telly Chakkar, Sudhanshu’s account has not only being hacked but has also got deactivated for now. Talking to the portal the Anupama actor revealed, “Around 9:30, I received a direct message in my Instagram account saying that the content which I have uploaded has copyright issues and I need to clarify it by clicking on the link below or else my account will be deactivated.”
He further added, “I have an idea that a lot of fake and spam emails keep coming in but the message sent by them looked very authentic to me and that’s why I decided to click on the link and clarify. After a few steps, it asked my password which I put then it was asking my personal details like phone number, mail id etc after which I felt that something is wrong, so I closed it immediately. But because I had already inserted my password it got hacked.”
“Even though I have an Instagram account from many years I have not been an active member due to which I didn’t have many followers. But after joining Anupamaa, I got quite active on it and used to post different and sensible stuff and in no time I managed to gain some 86k followers and was expecting it to reach 100k by end of this week. However, this happened. I am already in touch with a Facebook person and they are trying to resolve this. I just hope that it gets activated again.”
Well, we hope so too Sudhanshu. We wish to see you on social media soon.
