What is a Digital Footprint

A Digital Footprint is the word used to describe the trail, traces or "footprints" that people leave online. What ever you do online might be leaving a digital footprint behind.

Why is your digital footprint inportant

Your digital footprint is important because it helps employers look into your background, and helps advertisers track your movements across multiple websites. So no matter what you do online, it is important to know what kind of trail you are leaving.

How do you leave digital footprints

You leave a digital footprint when you shop online, visit social media sites such as Facebook or Instagram, and when you watch videos.
