Security Experts Explain Why You Should Never Print Your Boarding Pass

As the holiday season heats up, you probably have plans to jet off some where soon

Whether it's hopping a plane home or flying to a tropical getaway, security experts say you should fight the urge to print your boarding pass and especially don't post a photo of it to social media.

President and CEO of cybersecurity consulting firm CynergisTek, Caleb Barlow, explained to Forbes that the info contained on your pass is more than enough for hackers to clear out your frequent flyer points and resell them on the black market.

"You're probably not watching your miles or points like you would be your bank account."

Charles Henderson of IBM Security also says travelers should use the airline's mobile app rather than having a hard copy of your boarding pass to prevent info from being stolen.
