Tip of the Week

Tip Nine

Don't reveal too much about yourself.
Revealing too much personal information on social networks can put you at risk of fraud and identity theft that can negatively affect you financially. By revealing too much personal information, an online thief can use the information to guess passwords and answers to security questions or use your identity to obtain a credit card and open other financial accounts. Be cautious in sharing personal information on social networks and with whom you're sharing the information. Check your profile security settings and only connect with users you know personally and trust.

For more information on protecting your identity on social networks, read Online Mistakes To Avoid. But for more information on the how, what and when on identify theft, read Prevent Identity Theft.
