  3. 3. Digital Footprints 1. A  digital footprint  is the trail of data that is left behind by users on digital services. A digital footprint  is all of the recorded actions someone commits in digital environments. 2. These can include emails, texts, tweets, blogposts, visits to websites, use of a mobile device, online purchases etc. 3. And it is not limited to only login and logouts,
  4. 4. • Digital Footprints are "the online portfolios of who we are, what we do, and by association, what we know".  • Sometimes referred to as an internet footprint, digital shadow, or cyber shadow individual footprints measure the size of a person's online presence. •In his book My Digital Footprint, Tony Fish writes digital footprints are the digital ‘cookie crumbs’ that we all leave when we use some form of digital service, application, appliance, object or device. • There are two main classifications fordigital footprints: PASSIVE FOOTPRINTS and ACTIVE FOOTPRINTS
  5. 5. ACTIVE DIGITAL FOOTPRINTS Active digital footprints are created when personal data is released deliberately by a user for the purpose of sharing information about oneself. Active digital footprints can also be stored in many ways depending on the situation. In an online environment, a footprint can be stored by a user being logged into a site when making a post or edit, with the registered name being connected to the edit. In an off line environment a footprint may be stored in files, when the owner of the computer uses a keylogger, so logs can show the actions performed on the machine, and who performed them. Active ways: blogs, articles, photos, videos, and anything else you may post.
  6. 6. What’s included in our active digital footprint? • Facebook posts, shares & likes • Twitter updates • Uploaded photos & videos • Blog comments • LinkedIn profiles • Documents we’ve uploaded • Interactions with others Anything we’ve done publicly
  7. 7. PASSIVE FOOTPRINTS • A passive digital footprint is created when data is collected about an action without any client activation. • Passive digital footprints can be stored in many ways depending on the situation. In an online environment a footprint may be stored in an online data base as a "hit". This footprint may track the user IP address, when it was created, and where they came from; with the footprint later being analyzed. In an offline environment, a footprint may be stored in files, which can be accessed by administrators to view the actions performed on the machine, without being able to see who performed them. • Passive ways: What others post on the Internet about you. Furthermore, each time you make a movement online it is recorded.

  9. 9. The Biggest Problem!! Currently, there are millions of teenagers that are posting personal information online and on social networking websites all over the world. These teenagers do not realize that they are leaving a “digital footprint” which can subject them to serious consequences in their futures. Many teens do not know that future employers and college recruiters are tracking their every move before they are even called for an interview or consultation (Oxley, 2010)
  10. 10. Are You Aware……  28% of teens chat with people they don’t know in the offline world.  43% shared their first name.  24% shared their email address.  18% shared a personal photo of themselves.  12% shared their cell phone number.  Nearly 80% use the web to do research for school and college assignments.  Communicating and downloading content are the two primary uses of the internet by young people.  61% of kids play games online, including multiplayer games.  69 % of 13-17 year olds have updated their status on social networking sites to include their physical location. http://newsroom.mcafee.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=3659
  11. 11. DIGITAL FOOTPRINTS SIGNIFICANCE •Internet predators use these trails to prey on their victims. •Starts the moment a computer or smart phone logs online. •Information easily obtained by Web sites via spyware or law enforcement via court order / search warrant . •Digital Footprints are stored on the source computer and remote sites such as: Social Networks, E-mail Providers, Web Sites, Search. Engines
  12. 12. •Consequences of leaving a digital footprint can vary from being embarrassed by certain social media posts or pictures to identity theft. It is important that you are cautious about what you share over the Internet and that you take precautions to protect your identity. •Your digital footprint can tell someone who you know, where you are, where you’ve been, where you work, your opinions about certain issues, your hobbies and interests, what you look like, and more. •Your digital footprint can lead to consequences of many kinds, such as social, career-wise, or financially. Kids and teenagers are especially subject to social consequences from their digital footprints. Some don’t realize that posts that they put on social media sites are there for everyone to see and that they are there indefinitely. Other people can post inappropriate pictures and other negative posts about them that lead to embarrassment or even worse. •Another way that your digital footprint can negatively affect you is financially. Hackers and other cyber criminals can access your personal and private information if you are not careful. This can lead to identity theft and stolen money. You should always practice caution when entering any type of identifying data online. •CONSEQUENCES OF OUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINTS!!
  13. 13. DIGITAL FOOTPRINTS GOALS:- • Goal 1: • Parents, Teachers, and Students • Develop an understanding of what a “digital footprint” is. • Goal 2: • Parents • Set-up parental controls on your computer at home to ensure that your child is safe from predators and explicit websites. • Goal 3: • Teachers • Educate students on the importance of appropriate language, content, and pictures when posting personal information online. • Explain to students that whatever information is put online is permanent and accessible to everyone. • Goal 4 • Students • Use appropriate language, do not post personal information, and do not post inappropriate pictures of yourself online.
  14. 14. What Parents must !!!!
  15. 15. Facebook: 1] Privacy Settings on our facebook account profile................... 2] Under ‘Who can see my stuff? Make sure that the setting is Friends rather than Public. 3] In the left hand navigation pane you'll also see an option for Timeline & Tagging. 4] Click on this then repeat the process for ‘Who can see things on my timeline?’ Managing our digital footprints:-
  16. 16. You can of course delete your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts, but anyone determined enough can probably trace your profile.
  17. 17. Google+, Twitter, and LinkedIn all have similar options. 1.)Visit them and check that they are also not on the ‘public’ settings. 2.)Do a Google Vanity Search (Google for your name) and scan through to the 20th page. 3 .)Do a Vanity Search on Facebook ( will also get you the Bing result). or go to Account Menu -> Privacy Settings -> View Settings -> Preview My Profile to see how the world sees your profile. 4. )Linked In Search for your name and see the results that pop up 5. )Twitter Search: Go to www.Search.twitter.com and do a Vanity search to find out what is being tweeted about you.
  18. 18. You can manage your digital footprint by: •Keeping your personal details private. Use a nickname instead of your real name and always ask your parents before giving out your name, address or phone number online. •Not sharing your username or password with anyone. •Thinking before you post. Once posted, it can be difficult to remove. •Not posting things that you don't want others to know about or that you wouldn’t say to their face. •Being respectful of other people’s content that you post or share. For example, a photo that your friend took is their property, not yours. You should post it online only if you have their permission.

  22. 22. Erasing Your Digital Footprint Now let’s start with cookies. A simple way to ensure safe browsing without a trail is to make sure you are cleaning out your cache of cookies on your computer. Accessing the preferences option in any browser and clicking the “delete cookies” option can easily do this. A word of warning though: those users who enjoy auto-login and personal customization and personalization of sites you frequent will be deleted.

  23. 23. •If you would like a more thorough method of cleaning up cookies, as well as Internet history and other tracking tools, there are free options available. A popular software offering (and aMaximumPC favorite) for Windows users is Ccleaner. CCleaner, cleans all Internet history, cookies, auto-complete forms, and index files from your computer. Supported browsers include IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari. •Another option to clean cookies on your computer, particularly flash cookies, is a freeware program called Flash Cookie Cleaner. Flash cookies are simply cookies created by Adobe Flash plug-ins on websites that perform the same snooping tasks as regular cookies. Flash Cookie Cleaner works to eliminate these files, but also contains options to save cookies to sites you trust and wish to keep information on. •Do a basic search of your name on sites such as Spoke and Intelius and WhitePages to pull up what the rest of the world sees about you. From there, it becomes a tedious (but worthwhile) process of filling out online forms and making phone calls with these services to limit or remove your personal information from company databases. •If drastic measures are needed to erase your information, companies are ready and waiting to “wash out” your digital footprint: for a price.  Reputation.com offers a suite of paid services to protect, promote, and defend their customers’ personal data online. Their tagline? •“Scammers, stalkers and identity thieves prey on private data. Equally harmful are things we call negative content — a bad review of your business, a nasty comment on Facebook, an article about something from your past that’s simply irrelevant now — that could damage your personal life or your livelihood. We can help.” •If an absolute face lift or dramatic reduction of your online information is needed, pay services such as this may be your quickest way to a smaller digital shoe size . Other Options for managing our digital footprints:
  24. 24. Conclusion Teachers, parents, and teachers need to be aware of the permanent information that they choose to put online and realize that it is there forever. Also, students need to understand that whatever they put on Facebook, Twitter, etc. will and can be seen by anyone on the web.
