♥Sharing of personal information♥

Learn why you should be careful when sharing personal info

You will be asked for personal information often online.

There are many reasons you would be asked for it; you might be asked for your birthday to ensure you're old enough to sign up for something, or your address when ordering items online.

However, you should not always hand information away unless it's really necessary

Be careful to not post revealing personal information where anyone could see it. People can piece together information they find from different websites or social media to identify you in the real world.

Information like this can be used for identity theft, when people can impersonate you.

The most common type of impersonation is credit card fraud; where someone else will buy something with your details.

There are many other things people can do with your information though.
