STOP taking those fun online quizzes

Seen on Facebook:

What alcoholic drink are you? What state should you be living in? What was your profession in the old west? Share your senior photo! And by the way what high school did you attend, what year did you graduate and what was the school mascot?

Stop it. Sure these are fun but they are not harmless fun. At best you are giving personal information to marketers who then sell it to any and everybody targeting you for sales. At worst cyber criminals will use the info to hack your passwords and security questions.
