A frape attack is one where the attacker modifies the information of the target on social media platforms without their consent. While it is typically considered a practical joke, it borders on grave privacy invasion. The attacker can alter vital information, access private messages, and post stuff on their behalf.

Altering a person’s personal information or images or posting stuff without their knowledge can result in a host of negative outcomes. It can be embarrassing, have legal repercussions, and ruin their professional reputation.

Example of frape 

  • Changing a user’s profile photo on social media without their consent.
  • Posting a status on social media containing derogatory words without the user’s knowledge.
  • Messaging people on behalf of the user without their knowledge.
  • Changing a person’s private information on their social media page without consent.
