Hey! Look at this website! You can search almost anyone and find results!
Wow! Oh, I have an idea! Try searching yourself!
Oh no! it's my phone number, address, where I go to school, and a bunch of other stuff about me! !
Oh, that must be your digital footprint.
What is a digital footprint? If it is personal information released on the internet, then I don't want it!
A digital footprint is the traced data left behind from online activities. A digital footprint doesn't have to have personal information on it. You can actually change your digital footprint by changing your online activity.
How would I be able to change my online activity?
You could change your online activity by doing a lot of things.
Wow! Now that I think about it, my social media and internet activities do include me telling about my personal life a lot.
For example you could make sure your social media accounts are private, think before you post, and try not to release any personal information.
Thanks for telling me about this. I'll try to keep my online activities in check to control my digital footprint.
You're welcome. also always remember that you are in control of your digital footprint.
