In order to feel safe online, you must follow a few simple rules.
Remember that your safety depends only on you.
And to protect yourself on the Internet is better before there is any trouble.
Do not call your real name on the Internet,Name and other information. Filling out all kinds of questionnaires and registering on sites, think, is it really necessary to leave real data? Maybe you can limit yourself to a pseudonym? The same applies to mailboxes. Especially if you create a box just to confirm the registration. On forums, communicate anonymously. Do not call any personal information in the process of communication. To register on random forums, use the backup mailboxes.
Do not post personal photos on the Internet. Even if you do not specify a real name, you can always learn from the picture. Remember that the Internet is available to everyone. Including, for employers.
In no case anywhere on the Internet do not specifyYour home address. Be careful with the location of the phone number. After all, and on it you can, if necessary, establish your identity. Perhaps you are conducting some serious business on the Internet. Then leave the contact information: mailbox, phone numbers - a must. But in this case, one should not forget about caution.
Do not meet in reality with people whoKnow only by communication on the Internet. These are not empty words. Criminal chronicles are occasionally supplemented with notes on the consequences of such meetings. Even if it seems to you that you know your virtual interlocutor well, remember that anyone can hide behind anyone.
Do not lay out in free access and do notSend outsiders files that contain personal information and data about you. Pages of serious sites on which you have to leave personal information have additional protection. For example, official websites of banks.
If you have already "traced" the web, make a search request for personal information, which, presumably, left about yourself. Delete all found data.
