How can I manage my footprint?

  • Google yourself: periodically do a Google search of your name (use quotation marks around it to narrow results).
  • Monitor information: set up a Google Alert for your name so that you are notified everytime something new is added about you on the web.
  • Shop smart: use services like PayPal in order to reduce the amount of sites that retain your personal information.
  • Think before you post: be selective about the information that you post on social networking sites.

How can I protect my personal information?
