Last year, Kim Kardashian came out on top as the No. 1 most dangerous celebrity to search for online.

This year however, Kim finds herself sliding to the No. 26 spot as Love Island host Caroline Flack takes the top seat.

Coming in second is Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams while Late Late Show host James Corden comes in at No. 3.

Nicki Minaj slides into the fourth spot with Billie Eilish finishing out the top 5.

The rest of the top 10 includes Gad, Mischa Barton, Sam Smith, Dua Lipa and Liam Hemsworth respectively.

“Caroline Flack has cemented herself as one of TV’s most sought-after hosts,” McAfee’s Raj Samani says. “After another year of Love Island dominating headlines in the UK, I’m not surprised she has topped this years’ list. People want to keep up to date with the latest pop culture and celebrity news at any time from any device.

“Often consumers put that speed and convenience over security by clicking on suspicious links that promise content featuring our favorite celebrities. Consumers need to think before they click to be sure that they are surfing to safe digital content and protecting themselves from cyber-security threats that may be used to infect their devices or steal their identity.”

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
