A digital footprint is a trail of information that you leave behind when using the internet and digital devices. For example, when you are using your mobile phone or other devices to browse websites, transact online, post, or share information. You may not even be aware that you are
leaving a digital footprint and your information is publicly available.
Once you share information online, it can be there forever unless you are aware and actively manage your digital footprint. If you don’t manage your digital footprint, you could lose control of your information, and it may end up being used in ways that could potentially harm you, your family or your employer.
The attached document issued by the Australian Government helps you to take control of your digital footprint.
