Online Privacy

Online privacy is very important while on the Internet. Online privacy involves the right of personal privacy on the internet. It's important to be careful with what you do online.
A few examples of things that should not be posted on the web would be; Social security numbers, driver's license numbers, credit card numbers, and addresses. There are always websites trying to steal your information, so be careful! Make sure your information is safe by checking your privacy settings. You don't want anything personal getting to anyone.
Be aware of how dangerous everything you do online can be. Even just picking a screen name is dangerous! When creating your screen name, you shouldn't use anything suggestive, keep it simple.
Also, don't let anyone on chat rooms or social networks make you feel uncomfortable. There's a block button for a reason. You even have the option to report what happened to the website to prevent the incident from happening again.
There are always consequences of sharing too much person information online. You could get your I.D stolen or even just unwanted attention. You can reduce the risk of being targeted by an online predator simply by not posting inappropriate posts or pictures and not releasing your personal information.
