Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift among 2020’s ‘Most Dangerous Celebrities’

Be careful who you search online

Security software company McAfee has released its annual list of the world’s “most dangerous celebrities.”


These are the celebrities who’ll most likely lead you to get malware or a virus if you search for them online. The more popular a celebrity is online, the more likely that scammers will find a way to attach malware to searches containing their names.


Among the top 10 “most dangerous” for 2020: Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, and Jason Derulo.


All of those artists have made news in one way or another over the past few months, whether it’s the release of Mariah’s book and Rarities album, Taylor’s surprise drop of her album folklore, Justin’s “secret” new baby, or Jason’s massive success on Tik Tok.


The number one most dangerous celebrity this year is Anna Kendrick.

Number two is Sean “Diddy” Combs, followed by Blake Lively.  Also on the list: Jimmy Kimmel, Julia Roberts, and Kate McKinnon.
