Giving Out Personal Information

By: Olivia Ashley

You should never give out personal information to someone you don’t know. It is not safe in the world we live in today.

Teens and children know how to work the internet, but do they know who to trust? Most of the time no. If they make a 'new friend' on the internet, they are more likely to give out personal information to the friend online, than over the phone, no matter how nice the person may be.

Personal information is...

  • Email addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Full name
  • Pictures of yourself
  • medical records
  • credit card numbers
  • bank account numbers
  • passwords to sites
  • School you attend or attended
  • and so much more that can lead to who you are
Many people steal others identities, credit card account numbers, and everything you own in just a couple minutes. This is mostly online, with internet sites that you give your information to, and even just over facebook.
Don't give out your personal information to anyone you don't trust 100%.
