Always beware of what you put out and who you put it out to
when you're on a website, try to remain as anonymous as possible. That means keeping all private information private. Here are some examples of private information that you should never allow the public to see:
- your full name
- any type of photograph (even of your pet!)
- your current location (some phones have automatic GPS apps built in that may need to be turned off)
- home or school address or the address of any of your family or friends
This is John, John uses a fake name on the internet which is Michael, this is a good way of not letting out your real details.
Why you shouldn't put in your full details.
This is Mari as you can see here in this picture, Marie has put all of her personal details on her Facebook page. It is not good to put all of your details on any social media because anyone could say their somebody but they might not be the person they say they are, but you don't know that
People who are fakes on the internet also can send you emails which may contain a virus. A virus is a piece of code that is loaded onto your computer without your knowledge, it can replicate it's self and it can stop your computer from working.
