NEVER Throw Your Boarding Pass Away, Not Even After Your Flight

Everybody knows that a boarding pass is mandatory in order to board a plane. But did you know that you should never just chuck it in the nearest trash can?

While we’re in the airport, we keep a close eye on our boarding passes, clutching them in our hands like they’re precious gems. But after we land, pretty much everyone ditches the ticket, whether it’s lost on the floor, compacted in the washing machine or thrown directly into the trash.

This may seem innocent enough until you realize the abundance of personal information encrypted on your pass. You’d be amazed at the information a person can glean just by scanning the QR code on the ticket: your home and e-mail addresses, your phone number and even your bank information! When you get rid of your next boarding pass, shred it. Your bank account will thank you. 2/5/2016
