How to Protect Your Personal Data. Social media is a huge part of the world we live in, and we all use at least one social network. Even though most social media tries to protect its users’ personal data, there are still some seemingly innocent things that can be used by bad people to hurt you. If you want to keep your private things private and protect yourself and your family, you have to follow some simple yet very important rules.

Geolocation 0:45
Adding geolocation may seem fun and important to a post. However, you have to be very careful with it because you’re letting everybody know where you are at that given moment. Moreover, if you do it often, it won't be hard for someone with bad intentions to figure out your routine — where you usually take a rest, where you live, and where you spend your time.

Your date of birth is important, as is your full name and home address. This information can help swindlers hack your personal or banking account. So, again, think carefully before adding this information.

The bar code on your ticket is individual and can be used to get personal information given to the airline. Another popular mistake is posting a picture of your VIP credit card or driving license to boast about your achievements. It can lead to the same thing.

You really should take the child's consent into consideration when sharing this kind of stuff. The NSPCC claims that excessive personal information in social media smoothes the way for crimes against kids. You can surely agree that letting a criminal know which school your child attends is the last thing you want, so don't provide this information if your account is open to everybody.
