What Can You Do To Protect Your Online Identity?

Respond quickly.

If you find your personal information online, act quickly. Hackers create a personal and public safety issue for Law Enforcement Officers and Public Officials.

Block as many records as possible.

Including social media networks that we all find so tempting to create. If you have them, close them. Or take advantage of the security features each site has and only allow close personal friends to view your page.

Block your Voter Information Data.

Even though this information is a public record, you can still contact your county and request that your information not be shared.

Do some extra leg work on your own.

You might need to go the extra mile and make phone calls or send emails to protect your name. It might seem ridiculous and tedious, but it works.

Bottom line – As Law Enforcement Officers and Public Officials, the need for anonymity is vital. When your personal information is displayed online, it creates real safety issues. Be proactive and take the necessary steps to protect yourself and your family members.
