Online privacy is always important and, possibly even more so, if you are the victim of cyberbullying or online harassment.

To protect yourself as best as possible:

  • Keep private information private. 
    • Full birthdate
    • Current location
    • Home address
    • Phone number
    • Vacation plans
    • Embarrassing photos or information
  • On all public social media accounts, think twice before posting personal content.
  • Do not tag your underage children or your friends' underage children in public posts.
  • On personal Facebook pages, keep your post privacy set to friends only or use a custom setting of friends with exclusions.
  • Consider turning off other people’s ability to post on your pages.
  • If you want to keep your online behavior private, do not like or comment on other accounts' posts that are public.
