At the beginning of 2018, a scandal about the data leakage between Facebook and Cambridge Analytica was uncovered, this caused the information of thousands of people to be exposed, without consent.
If you found out about the case and still did not take measures to take care of your data, you should take into account the nine tips that we will share with you.
It is not necessary to completely delete your account, but to make better decisions about the information you share with your contacts.
Your birthday is an important piece of information that also includes your name and address, with it anyone can more easily access your personal data.
2. Telephone number
The best scenario here is acquiring a fan. The worst case? A stalker.
3. Debug “friends”
How many contacts do you have? Do you really want to share your information with everyone? It is important to choose the information you want to receive, so you can debug some contacts.
4. Photographs of your children
As far as possible avoid sharing photos of your children, you could be exposing their safety.
Victoria Nash, Acting Director of the Oxford Internet Institute, asked a very good question on this topic, and it has to do with consent: What kind of information would children want to see online in the future?
5. Name of your child’s school
This is another of the data that you must erase urgently, without wanting to, you could be giving information to some people who do not have the best intentions.
6. Location services
In 2015, TechCrunch reported that more than 500 million users accessed Facebook solely from their mobile devices, which means the same number has the potential to broadcast their location online, and anyone can know where you are.
7. Tag your location
By doing this you may be showing your habits and routines, avoid doing it
8. Credit card information
This is never a good idea.
9. Boarding pass images
If you are one of those who take photos of plane tickets, we regret to tell you that you could miss your next flight, since with the barcode you can get all the information about your flight.
