3 Things You Can Do Right Now To Protect Your Digital Footprint

Safeguarding your digital footprint is crucial today.

With rampant identity theft and employers judging candidates online, you must proactively manage your presence. 

Here are 3 quick tips on how to protect your digital footprint:

1. Delete/Private All Social Media Accounts

Deleting unused social media accounts can prevent people from accessing private details about you online. 

Alternatively, set all active accounts to private. 

This makes you unsearchable/unviewable to anyone unless you connect with them.

Privatizing social media and removing dormant accounts are two effective ways to curb unwanted access to your personal information and activity.

2. Be Careful What You Post Online

Also, carefully consider what you actively post online. Avoid revealing your exact address, sharing private details publicly, or posting polarizing content. 

This information could be used against you. Being mindful of what you share on social media and sites protects your digital footprint.

3. Opt Out Of Data Brokers & People Search Sites

Having your personal details like address and phone number removed from public sites can help prevent doxing, stalking, and spam calls. 

Sites like Whitepages, Spokeo and TruePeopleSearch publish over 300 million people’s private info publicly findable with just a name and city. 

Removing yourself from these data broker sites can give peace of mind knowing your details aren’t easily searchable.
