Unit 3 task – What are other ways humans can leave traces of information with the use of technologies?


A digital footprint is when you leave information about yourself behind while using technology. These can be as simple as a comment on your friends Instagram or Facebook post, however they are still a trace of you being on the internet. Every-time we use the internet we leave behind a trace of us using our device no matter if it’s our iPhone, iPad or tablet. Other ways we leave traces of information are using a credit or debit card, connecting to wireless internet, signing online petitions and even browsing the web. Your device is always seeing what you are looking at and gaining information about you to craft more interesting target information for you to see. We should always be careful about our digital footprint and how we are using devices.
