Watch Out, Teens! 10% Of Your Parents Are Hacking In To Your Facebook Accounts

Attention, teenagers: your parents may be logging in to your Facebook account without your knowledge.

TRUSTe just released a report on privacy issues related to teens, their parents, and social networks. The most surprising result:

40% of parents said their teens had given them login access to their accounts, and another 10% said they had obtained access without their teens knowing about it.

Really? 1 in 10 parents think it’s OK to spy on their kids without their knowledge? That’s pretty disturbing.
