I use weird names and pictures like Dishwasher and never click on links anyone sends me. All my accounts are private so people I don't know can't see the things I post unless I give them access.

Hi AngelG. It's good that you don't talk to strangers and that you have a secure password. I hope these tips give everyone more ideas on how to take care of their digital footprint. It's important :)

I often use the internet on my phone and never log out! My passwords usually are complicated. I don't give information at people that I don't know, only at my friends. I always upload photos in my social redes but not show my house or my house rooms'. I can say that I am a bit careful.

I'm not the most carful person in the world, but I take care of what I post on my social networks. I never let my internet friends know if I leave home or if I'm going somewhere. My passwords are a combination of letters and numbers, and if I use a computer I always log off, but I usually use the internet on my phone. The problem is that I never delete the historial.

I really am careful about what I post on Facebook and Twitter, and I barely post on Instagram. But even though I only use internet on my personal mobile phone and laptop, I must admit that I never delete my history. Also, something you should try to do is use different passwords on each website you sign into, in case someone succeeded hacking into one of your account.

I've actually never thought of my digital footprint before. I have been doing everything that's suggested in the text above and I also care about what I post on social media because I'm aware that a lot of people can see my posts: my friends, my relatives, my classmates, former teachers etc. We should carefully choose whether to post something on social media because many people judge based on our profiles and posts.

When i don't want anyone know my history, i offen use incognito tabs. Do you know what i mean ? In fact, i think the internet really dangerous if you have more information impotant, so you should understand what you do if you want lost your data. For me if i recieve strange mail or website i not sure don't click.
