My Digital Dossier

Selina 7A

What is a digital dossier?

My digital dossier is like a big folder which contains all my searches, social media, pictures, and basically everything I do online. The same goes for you. You might not realize it but it's all recorded and follows you everywhere. Even if you have a good reputation and something negative happens, the police can access your digital dossier and track down what you might have done.

When does it start?

What's interesting is my digital dossier starts even before I were born and continues even after my death! When I was little, it was usually my parents who gave me a digital footprint by sharing pictures or info mostly on social media. As I get older, more and more decisions are mine to make and I can start signing up for social media or games. Even if I delete something I commented or posted, it'll always be out there and if someone wants to track who said what, they will be able to. So I should be careful what I do on digital media!

Your digital dossier stores more and more everyday!

Making decisions

Sometimes you will choose to sign up for something. Usually when you do, it will ask for your private information. Especially if you're really eager, or really young you will probably give away info that isn't even required. Make sure you keep your private info safe and if you have to, make up a fake name, or address.
