Check your privacy settings

Actively manage your privacy settings.

Do you worry about your privacy on popular personal electronic devices and social networks? You’re not alone. Keep your stuff secure and private by managing your online privacy settings while still being sociable.

Privacy settings can be complex, but you can exercise control over who can and can’t see your personal information. A good rule of thumb is to set up privacy settings for “private” or “friends only” to keep your personal information and location out of the wrong hands. Certain information such as Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, usernames and passwords should never be posted on social media.

Sites generally also provide guidance on how to check for unusual access or activity in your accounts. It’s important to review your account regularly noting any unfamiliar or suspicious activity. For example, the “details” link on the bottom of Gmail’s page lists the most recent IP addresses where your mail was accessed and their associated locations. If you see suspicious account activity, immediately change your password and log out of your account.

You can use the direct links found at StaySafeOnline.org to update your privacy settings on popular devices and online services such as Amazon, Pandora, Instagram, Fitbit, Xbox and more. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, email info@staysafeonline.org, and they’ll add it.

Privacy settings are constantly evolving as new features are launched, so be aware and keep on top of things. To view more tips and advice to protect your personal information, visit STOPTHINKCONNECT.org.
