When allowing people into your home, you’re giving them access to much more of your life than you may realise.
You might be sensible with what you share online, but do you know what your family and friends are sharing?
Even regular sharing of daily activity, holiday pictures and hobbies can give too much information to the wrong people.
Over-sharing online, through media and even government data sources like Company’s House, can mean you are giving away personal information to hackers. By gathering this information and building a profile on you and your family, hackers can make you a target.
Younger generations can be a big risk to families if they overshare on social media. Avoiding the sharing of documents, letters, licences and other sensitive information might seem obvious but even sharing daily activities, holiday pictures and hobbies can give too much information to the wrong people.
