Apparently You Should Never Throw Away Your Boarding Pass. The Reason? I Had No Idea!
We protect them with our lives to make sure we have it readily available, but what do we usually do with them once the flight’s over?? Some leave it on the plane, others tuck it in their pockets and put it down forgetting their whereabouts once we are done with them. I never realized that being so careless with the whereabouts of my boarding pass could potentially get me into so much trouble!
The reason? According to ‘Krebs on Security”, there’s a ton of personal information encrypted on the boarding pass.

From there, they can gain access to financial and banking information. Watch the video below and learn about the risks and damage you face by being careless with your boarding pass.
