What is it?

Your digital footprint can be your shop window, where you can showcase your achievements. However, if you get it wrong, it can work against you with future employers or even when you apply for a visa or some university courses!

Your footprint can be much wider than just information on your web pages, it can extend to:

  • CCTV footage
  • your location, if you use GPRS on your phone
  • your movements through sites on the internet
  • your credit card details if you allow a site to store them

Let's look at this in some more detail.
