When you post an inappropriate image people who don't like you will bully you by commenting on your photos or by bullying you at school. Another reason why you shouldn't post inappropriate images online is because when you apply to a university they will most likely go through your social media and if you have inappropriate images on your page they might not accept you.

Biometrics

Biometrics is when the code for something is the fingerprint or the iris or even the voice of some specific people. The code can only be “unbroken” by the people who have their iris, voice or fingerprint as a code. The reason why these three are used for codes is because they are unique meaning that every person has a different one and no two individuals have the same. This code isn’t only used for places and for secret laboratories, the fingerprint scan is used in our everyday life for example it is used in some phones such as the iphone.

Encryption

Encryption is when a message is written in such a way that only the person who gets the letter understands what it says. Encryption is used to send secret messages and has been around for thousands of years. As the years go by the messages get harder to find and understand. encryption can vary. Sometimes the letters might be backwards and sometimes the letters might be numbers but what is for sure is that encryption has and will be around for a long time
