Department of Education, Training and Employment Everything you post online contributes to your digital footprint. What you think you’re sharing with friends may also be viewed by complete strangers — including future employers, workmates and landlords. Once it’s online, it could be there forever! Great state. Great opportunity. Google yourself Look closely at your search results beyond the first page — check your various aliases and usernames. If you find content you do not want shared, remove it, report it or ask friends to ‘untag’ it. Think before you share Consider the outcomes of messages before you share them online. Ask yourself, is it true, useful and positive? Check your privacy settings Regularly update general privacy settings — websites often add and remove new security options without notifying users. Delete unused accounts and apps Hiding or removing irrelevant and old content will help keep your digital footprint up-to-date. Check your friends list Is there anyone you should remove from your networks? Think twice before you add ‘randoms’ to your friends list. Keep your devices close… Your mobile, tablet and computer contain a large amount of personal information. Secure your devices with a passcode or pin and store them in a secure place. …and your passwords closer Never share passwords, don’t use the same passwords for similar accounts and change your passwords regularly. www.qld.gov.au/cybersafety If you encounter negative or offensive content online that involves your school or affects your school community, please contact your principal.
