When cyber criminals want to hack someone, they are more likely to succeed with smaller sites, as they probably don’t have a dedicated security team. However hacking Google, Facebook or Twitter is a much more difficult task. To start they have specialist teams monitoring their services 24/7! So why trust them to keep your information safe? If you have an account with them, they already have all they need anyway.
