Billie Eilish Is One of the Most Dangerous Celebrities to Search Online
Billie Eilish has been named one of the most dangerous celebrities to search for online.
On Monday (October 21), cybersecurity firm McAfee revealed all the celebs you should avoid on Google if you don't want to run the risk of getting a virus or malware on your computer. The company released two lists — one for the UK and another for the US — and the results might surprise you.
Topping this year's UK list is Love Island host Caroline Flack. She's followed by actress Maisie Williams, who was most likely searched a lot after that epic Game of Thrones moment. Late Late Show host James Corden came in third and Nicki Minaj took the fourth spot, while 17-year-old Eilish rounded off the top five following her successful year in music. (She's currently on tour and tickets are still available here.)
The rest of the list sees Frozen star Josh Gad in sixth place, while Mischa Barton, Sam Smith, Dua Lipa and Liam Hemsworth completed the top 10 respectively.
As for the US, you'll be surprised to find out Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel, who's known for being one of the sweetest actresses in Hollywood, is the most dangerous. Check out who else made the list, below:
1. Alexis Bledel
2. James Corden
3. Sophie Turner
4. Anna Kendrick
5. Lupita Nyong’o
6. Jimmy Fallon
7. Jackie Chan
8. Lil Wayne
9. Nicki Minaj
10. Tessa Thompson
According to McAfee, the survey is meant to highlight the danger of clicking on suspicious links. "Consumers may not be fully aware that the searches they conduct pose risk, nor may they understand the detrimental effects that can occur when personal information is compromised in exchange for access to their favorite celebrities, movies, TV shows, or music," Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist at McAfee, said in a statement (via Time).
We'll definitely think twice next time we search our faves online...
