UNDERSTANDING YOUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINT
It’s worth exercising some caution when using social media. Not everyone using social media is necessarily who they say they are. Take a moment to check if you know the person, and if the friend/link/follow is genuine. Less obviously, you should think about your digital footprint, which is a term used to describe the entirety of information that you post online, including photos and status updates. Nefarious individuals can use this publicly available information to steal your identity, or use it to make phishing messages more convincing. You should think about what you’re posting, and who has access to it. Have you configured the privacy options so that it’s only accessible to the people you want to see it?
HOW TO USE HEYJINNI SAFELY
Utilise privacy settings to control your digital footprint. Social media serves as a fantastic means to stay connected with family, friends, business contacts, and stay abreast of the latest news. Nonetheless, it’s crucial to understand how to effectively manage security and privacy settings to ensure that your personal information remains accessible only to you
