Our society is becoming increasingly reliant on technology. While this offers many conveniences, it is also becoming easier, and easier to over share personal information on the Internet. Here are some tips to avoid over-sharing and endangering you most personal information:
- Some of your information is more personal than you think. Identity thieves can hack into your accounts using details as casual as your birthday.
- Keep things like drivers licenses or credit cards out of the frame of your pictures. An extreme zoom can be used to hone in on the numbers.
- Check the privacy settings on your social networks often. These sites change their privacy settings often, so it is important that you do not miss something when it updates.
- Location-based apps can be fun to use, but also give people your exact whereabouts. This information can be very catastrophic if in the wrong hands.
