Unit 3 – Other ways humans can leave behind traces of data


There are many ways and activities that humans can undergo to leave behind traces of data when using various technologies. For example, by posting to social media websites such as Facebook and Instagram which can be found easily particularly if your account settings are set as public instead of private. Therefore we must be mindful when posting online, and prevent an image or post holds insights into private information such as an address. When using the internet or various devices data about you (IP) can be tracked the use of an VPN can aid in letting others know your location, Another tool I learnt about was the Tor Onion Browser which whilst slower than traditional browsers can spoof tyuor IP address.
