There are many steps you can take to protect yourself online including keeping your online profile settings on private so that you have control over who can see the details you share on your online profile. This gives you the freedom to choose who to accept into your online space. Another protective step you may consider is being mindful of who you share your images with; most online platforms such as Facebook allow you to share any images privately in a message or on your user profile such as uploading an image from your device gallery or sharing a post.
An old English adage says a picture is worth a thousand words. And whether it is printed out to hang in our homes or shared electronically on social media or websites, there are many complexities that can be captured in one single image. Protecting yourself online also means considering with whom you share your pictures, images and videos.
Pictures, photos, images and video are great for capturing moments in time and sometimes one moment can change your entire life.
