Giving out Personal Info Online
How much is too much, if any at all?
Personal Information Online
Do any of us even realize just how much information we give out on the internet? Surprisingly, quite a bit, and we don’t even realize it. People will see on the news that something bad happened to a young girl, only to find out that she had put her personal information on a popular website, unprotected. Or that somebody is getting a prank phone call in the middle of the night because, they posted their phone number. Teens and young people are the ones most oblivious to this. The internet is global, just like business. That means anybody, virtually anywhere can see your personal information. But, how much information is too much, if any at all? We all should know, not to give away your local phone number, or say you are leaving for the night because you could come home to an empty house... no joke. If you want to post where you went wait until you are home, then post it. Hackers can reach you too. They don’t have to use the same computer, they can reach your computer and all of the information on it (bank accounts, or credit cards) from their own computer.
It's not Private
Posting your info on the internet allows any person in the world to see it. Don't post it if you don't want it known.
Please protect your privacy.
Seriously, it may save you!
