Be aware of the dangers of graduation selfies!

22/06/2018

As more than two thirds of students plan to take graduation selfies this year, Prospects Higher Education Degree Datacheck (HEDD) warns that they could be used to produce fake degree certificates. Prospects HEDD, the official system for degree and university authentication in the UK, surveyed 1,068 students preparing to graduate this year.

  • While 69% plan to include their degree certificate on a photo, 24% will video their achievement.
  • 71% of students plan to share their content on social media, with Facebook and Instagram the favoured channels.

Sharing images of degree certificates can unwittingly give fraudsters access to the latest logos, crests, signatories, stamps, holograms and wording, fuelling the multi-million pound trade in fake degrees.

The latest designs can be easily copied onto fake certificates and passed off as genuine to unwitting employers.
