Information such as birthdates, education and current location are things we should avoid sharing to decrease the chances of identity fraud and other online crimes. Avoid posting status when you’re leaving your residence and telling your online community that you’ll be gone for a long time. This increases the possibility of you becoming the target of online crimes. Your personal information like birthdays and education could likewise be used to get access on your other online accounts by certain individuals for online fraud.
