It’s more complicated than you think since dangers take many shapes and forms. Here are popular apps that are dangerous for your Android or iPhone. When you test your eyes in this visual puzzle, try to think about the many different types of dangers you encounter on a day-to-day basis.

You’ll find that this brain teaser might take longer than you think. That’s because it challenges you to think flexibly and creatively. If you can spot the hidden danger in this image in less than 30 minutes, you might be safer than 90% of the population.

Stay safe while you soak up the summer sun

Think of this brain teaser as a safety predictor. Scan the image and try to see which person is risking their health. If you can’t find the hidden person, you might be in danger the next time you go outside.

If you couldn’t spot the hidden danger, here’s the answer

As you can tell, you can have a lot of fun under the sun. When you head to the beach, you can surf, run, play water games, and sunbathe. However, the best way to have a good time is to prepare ahead of time.

One of the people in this visual puzzle didn’t bring an essential safety tool to the beach. As a result, they aren’t appropriately protecting themselves from the unforgiving glare of the sun. We’ve got the answer if you couldn’t find the at-risk sunseeker.

We circled the answer for those who couldn’t find the health risk in this visual puzzle for adults:

That’s right: The person swimming in the blue inner tube differs from everyone else in this tricky visual puzzle game. If you look closely, you’ll notice that he’s the only person at the beach who isn’t wearing sunglasses. That’s pretty dangerous since glasses can help prevent sun-related eye diseases.

So if you aren’t using sunglasses when you’re outside, you’re putting your health in danger. According to Columbia University Irving Medical Center, exposing your eyes to the sun’s UV rays can lead to all sorts of issues, like:

  • Cataracts.
  • Macular degeneration.
  • Pterygium.
  • Cancers and eyelid tumors.
  • Damage to your cornea and the tissue that covers your eyes.

For the sake of your health, protect your eyes with sunglasses. Exposing your eyes to the sun’s harmful UV rays can cause some severe damage. You can grab high-quality sunglasses for cheap thanks to Amazon’s summer sale.
