Advertising with a Techy Twist

Free advertising is hard to come by these days. But a group of anonymous teenagers has taken it upon themselves to advertise how important password security. By hacking accounts of tech titans.

Mark Zuckerburg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and Amazon CTO Werner Vogels are among their victims.

Instead of severely abusing their power, OurMine almost innocently advertises their services through a link to their websites and creates awareness for the overall need for password security.

They’ve proven that sometimes the best way to show someone they need your services is to really show them. Risky approach, but they garnered attention through accounts of some of the most followed people in the world.

Claps for creativity, but ethics are still in question.
