3. Be Smart With Social Media

Smart, in this case, means selective. Too often, internet users give away far more personal information than is necessary, particularly on social media. The reality is that your social media habits can directly compromise your privacy. In fact, most of the information online about us is the information we give away ourselves in the form of sharing, “Checking In” to physical locations, and of course, oversharing sensitive personal details.

Oversharing personal information on social media can make you vulnerable to cybercriminals after your identity. There have even been cases of social media users having their homes robbed after announcing their vacation in real-time, notifying criminals they would not be home. The clear solution to this problem is to be extremely careful about what you share on social media. You may also familiarize yourself with the privacy settings for your account, and confine your circle only to those you know in real life.
