Social Media Safety Tips from Yale



Don’t share too much about your daily activities and whereabouts on social media as this information can get into the wrong hands.


Watch your tags

Avoid tagging yourself at different locations; this tells opportunistic burglars that you’re away from your home.


Delay posting

Wait to tag, post photos or update statuses until you return home to prevent being targeted.


Security settings

Check security settings are set to private so only your friends and family can see the statuses you post.


Do you know them?

Don’t accept friend requests from people you don’t know personally - you don’t know who they may be friends with.
