Your Digital Footprint

By, Diana Ellis

What is a digital footprint?

A digital footprint is anything that you do on the Internet. For example if you post a picture of you and your friends at a basketball game, people know where you were. If you post another pictures stating you will be going to a restaurant, people will know where you are going to be.

How To Keep Your Information Hidden

Well first of all, you can't keep it all hidden. But to keep most of it so no one can just scroll over and see it, you need to make sure you don't post any personal information anywhere public. You also need to make all your profiles private if you can. If someone adds you, follows you, texts you, or contacts you in any way and you do not know them, either block them, or figure out if they are a safe person to have linked to your account.
