Security experts are advising flyers not to throw out their boarding passes or post pictures of it online as your boarding pass, even after your flight, can land you into a lot of trouble, if it lands in the hands of a hacker who can easily gain access to your personal information via the boarding pass bar code.

According to krebsonsecurity.com, the bar code on a boarding pass holds your private information, including who you are, what your phone number is, what your email id is, and even your home address. So when you throw your used boarding pass away, you not only put yourself in danger of having your critical information stolen, but also in a possible risk of identity fraud.
