Cyber security is becoming a big challenge in today’s time. Despite the ever-increasing security measures, hackers are being able to break into any social media account like this. Such cases have come to the fore many times before. The Twitter accounts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP National President JP Nadda were also hacked earlier.
