Personal Protection Tip: Limit Personal Info Published In Social Medi

Personal Protection Tip: Be especially careful with information that you publish about yourself over the public Internet. Of special interest to privacy advocates are location sharing applications such as FourSquare. This application enables users to specify their current location or - alternatively speaking - to name where they are not located (e.g. home).

This information could have adverse safety implications, if there are burglars, stalkers, rapists, or violent exes interested in finding the person being tracked. Furthermore, an analysis of your activity stream can also reveal any habits of routine that may also compromise your safety. Thus, if you should utilize a location tracking application, such as FourSquare, make sure that you vet and set appropriate security options to limit your online exposure from undesirable persons and strangers.
