Online Safety is a very important factor today.
Social interaction and business online is something we all enjoy because the internet is easy to use, works fast and you can accomplish much in a short time. Cruising online is how most of us these days spend many hours – in average at least 1 hour and 20 minutes every day on social media – and for many people it is much longer time.
One of the challenges on the internet and the reason you shouldn’t give out personal information online is the data of yours that not only you but also everybody else can see and access.
Your online safety and Internet places with public access
Most people are active every day on Social Media like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+ and a great number of other places. These places all give public access to your personal information, which means that everybody all over the world can read and see what you post and keep your posts as long as it pleases them and use it any way they want.
In other words: Whatever you say from the first time you post anything online will stay there forever for anyone to see.
Your Online Safety is depending on what you give out of personal information, not only the obvious like yours or your kids name, age, address, social security number, debit or creditcard numbers, email, phone numbers and much more is personal information, but also personal opinions are personal information. Forgetting this can in some situations create a long-term liability for you.
