Why Is Avril Lavigne The Most Dangerous Celebrity To Search For Online?

No, I'm referring, in fact, to matters of cybersecurity.

Searching for the "7 Days" singer online is more likely to lead fans to malicious websites than any other artist, according to computer security company McAfee. Other celebrities in the list are Zayn Malik, Celine Dion, Calvin Harris, Justin Bieber, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Katy Perry, and Beyoncé.

The Santa Clara-based computer security company said on its website that people who use online search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing to find information on Lavigne have a great chance of discovering viruses or malware instead. MP3 music sites were specifically called out, with McAfee warning that searches for the term "free MP3" returned the highest number of risky websites.

Be careful who you search for.

According to a recent study, Avril Lavigne is the most unsafe celebrity to search online. Oddly, she's the target of an internet conspiracy theory that suspected the real Avril died and was replaced by an imposter. The second reason is that in late 2016 Lavigne announced that she was working on a new album that will be released before the end of 2017. In August, online searches for her music ramped up again after the Canadian punk rocker took to Instagram to promise new music soon.

'In today's digital world, we want the latest hit albums, videos, movies and more, immediately available on our devices, ' Gary Davis for McAfee told the Guardian.

MARKHAM, ON, Sept. 19, 2017 /CNW/ - Shawn Mendes has displaced Justin Bieber as the most risky celebrity for Canadians to search for online. Previous lists have flagged Amy Schumer and Emma Watson. Searching for Lavigne sees a 14.5 percent risk, and if you are the sorry sod to search "Avril Lavigne free mp3", expect that number to rise to 22 percent.

Now isn't that a little obvious - never search for "free" anything! This McAfee tool can help keep you safe by identifying malicious websites and warning the user before they click.
