My Digital Dossier

Saif Buheis

How it All Started

When I was born, my parents wanted to spread the news easily and quickly so they decided to share the news on the media. They used email. And, the hospital keeps the record or information about me. Also, a birth certificate was made that contained information about me. There are surveillance cameras in the hospital which recorded me. As you can see, my digital footprint has been getting a lot bigger even since I was born.

Identity

As you know already, when your digital dossier gets bigger, it also means that more of your identity gets spread. This means there could be some danger when your digital dossier gets bigger. For example, if you order something from an untrusted site you put in a lot of private information they can track you down or even expose you online. So, just remember to be cautious when you are giving people private information.

How My Digital Footprint Can Get Bigger

My digital footprint has even started to grow since before I was born and will continue to grow even after I die. Before I was born, My parents called or told the big news through email to the people they know. Whenever I search on Google my digital dossier gets bigger. When I order something from a website it gets bigger, when I text my friends my digital dossier gets bigger and even when I walk to a public place my digital dossier gets bigger. Even when I am unaware my digital dossier will get bigger.

Conclusion

In conclusion, my digital dossier will only get bigger as time passes. It all started from even when i was not born and it will continue to grow even when I am dead. These days with all this easy access to communication, people's digital dossier will become easier to be exposed which means people's digital dossier will only get bigger as time passes.
