Only 19 at the time, she wasn’t aware that someone had the ability to hack her phone and watch her. In a video produced by the The Hustle in 2016 they summarize getting access to phone cameras, account information, and private photos in 10 minutes. Miss (Wolf) California made it her mission to raise awareness about cybercrime and toured a number of schools in an effort make the internet a safer place and help keep our private lives private. She continued her crusade and she partnered with us later that year and together we are working to protect as many people as possible.

The most important takeaway is that we are in a position to take action instead of react; because if we’re reacting it’s already too late. It is stories like these that inspire many of us to make a difference and take action.
