Things You Should Never Reveal Online

While many people enjoy the relative anonymity of the internet, sharing your personal data online can be problematic if it falls into the wrong hands.

For example, you shouldn’t divulge your full name, address or phone number to anyone online unless you’re absolutely certain you know who they are. A good rule is to never say anything online that you wouldn’t be comfortable saying to a random person on the street. You should be particularly wary of sharing any financial information, such as bank account or credit card information, unless you’re dealing with a highly rated and secure online business. Check that a site is secure before entering your information.

Remember, once you put something on the web, you never know who can access it.
