Daniel Padilla disheartened after hack attack


As fans began speculating on how Daniel Padilla would deal with the hacking of his Instagram account, the teen superstar said he will still try to revive his existing account after it was hacked earlier this week. Daniel’s onscreen partner and rumored girlfriend Kathryn Bernardo updated his fans on the hacking incident via Twitter.

The teen superstar admitted being discouraged after hackers changed the password of his account which has over 250,000 followers. Recall that last year, he lost the password of his first Instagram account.

Social media is an easy way for celebrities to interact with fans and increase their brand and influence. However, online identities are vulnerable to hacking, with unscrupulous people specifically preying on celebrities. Daniel’s account wasn’t the only one hacked of late. Even actress Angelica Panganiban has a recent brush with social media hacking, which, lucky for her, was resolved quickly.

Meanwhile, Daniel and Kathryn recently arrived in Manila from their Kapamilya U.S. tour. The two were also spotted leaving the airport in Daniel’s black sports car.
