Did you know? Your ‘Digital Footprint’ is the amount of information you leave behind when you ‘step’ through the online world. Your date of birth, age, face, social habits, favourite food and where you go every Thursday with friends can, potentially, be viewed by people you don’t know. Think before you post personal information online. Who is behind you, following your footprint?
Remember! Don’t share your personal information, including passwords, keep privacy settings high, don’t friend or meet strangers and tell someone you trust if you feel uncomfortable or frightened about something.
