Don’t forget to access privacy settings often!

Privacy settings are “the part of a social networking website, internet browser, piece of software, etc. that allows you to control who sees information about you.” With the growing prevalence of social networking services (SNS-social networking services), opportunities for privacy exposures also grows. Privacy settings allow a person to control what information is shared on these platforms.

Most apps or devices offer privacy settings for users. This gives you the freedom to know how much and what kind of information is shared. Always choose the least amount of data sharing. Always be cautious when sharing your name and location. Turn off location services and deny access to your camera.

When it comes to social media, be sure to review your privacy settings. Most social media sites will give you options to select who you are sharing your information with. Be sure those settings are set for trusted individuals and friends, rather than set to public for the whole world to see.

Go to the Settings and then access the Privacy section of the device or toolbar.
