Be Safe Not Stupid


You are away on vacation to some beautiful place and while enjoying yourself immensely you post all the details of the trip you are on. You are sure your Facebook friends will love to see pictures of you and your spouse and/or friends drinking, eating and visiting the sights. Ah, the fun of not being home!

Are you nuts?

With even the tiny bits of information that you give about yourself on your home page (for example the state, town, village in which you live; your job, age and interests) your house can be found quite easily by the denizens of evil who can make short work of anything valuable you’ve left around.

It makes far more sense to write about your vacations after your vacations rather than during your vacations. A vacation for you could fuel some criminals’ vocation for them.
