Passwords

When it comes to creating a profile online you have to create a password. Passwords are to keep anyone from going through your profiles and to protect it. You shouldn't share your password with anyone else, even if they are your friends. You may never know what they will do and take advantage with it. Also if you have multiple cites that need a password. Don't make them all the same. Have them different for each website. Also change your password once in a while.

User Agreements

When it comes to accepting the user agreements remember that it's like a contract. Your signing to your rights online to a social media or to other products. So please try to read the whole user agreements. Companies make the user agreements long to trick us to click accept without reading it. Also know what you are agreeing to. You may accept to agree on something that you may regret.
