What is a digital footprint?
How is data collected?
What footprint do you leave?
A digital footprint is the information about a person that exists on the Internet as a result of their online activity. Your digital footprint includes
your IDENTITY...name, address, phone number, school, clubs, any other specific information about you that is shared online.
the text and photos you post to social media.
your browsing habits and the comments you leave behind.
what others say about you online.
what you shop for or buy online.
Your settings online only offer partial protection. Data is collected both passively and actively, then distributed in the same way. It is mobile, easily copied, shared, findable, and hard to erase!
