How To Actually Delete your Digital Footprint

How To Actually Delete your Digital Footprint | Prendi Digital Citizenship, Social Issues and RE | Scoop.it

Helping students understand their digital footprint is an integral part of being a good digital citizen. Knowing that you leave behind a little trail of digital breadcrumbs as you conduct your digital life is useful  - and can even help you in some scenarios (like when you need to hunt down something you remember seeing online, but don’t remember exactly where…). But what happens when you need to delete your digital footprint (or more likely, a part of your digital footprint)?

I've considered protecting my digital footprint but never actually deleting it. In fact, many times we act as architects in building a positive online presence.

Melissa Marshall's insight:

Interesting - the perception is that young people know all about technology - but they don't. They need to be taught in steps or through inquiry, just like with everything else. They may be very good at adding selfies to Instagram or procrastinating on Facebook, but when it comes to research, evaluating sources and locating very specific information, their strategy of 'just Google it' does not hold up.

"But in an increasingly connected and digital world, the things a student needs to know are indeed changing—fundamental human needs sometimes drastically redressed for an alien modern world. Just as salt allowed for the keeping of meats, the advent of antibiotics made deadly viruses and diseases simply inconvenient, and electricity completely altered when and where we slept and work and played, technology is again changing the kind of “stuff” a student needs to know."

If you bring your phone, tablet or laptop with you when you travel, there’s one thing to keep in mind: public WiFi networks are public.

“That open Wi-Fi connection opens the door for hackers,” writes NPR’s Steve Henn. “They can get in the middle of transactions between, say, you and your bank.”

 

Because you’re sharing the network with strangers, there’s the risk that someone is using readily available software that snoops on what you’re doing.
