Unit 3 – Task 3

What are other ways humans can leave traces of information with the use of technologies? Share an example or examples with the community.

Whenever we engage in communication on the internet, participate in online gaming, indulge in social media or online shopping, or use applications we are leaving traces of information. Often we are unaware of location tracking attached to programs which can often make others aware of our exact position. Each time we use a search engine we are enabling cookies which then uses the information we have entered to make assumptions about our wants, needs, and preferences. Hence why it is necessary for our children to be made aware of the importance of cyber safety and responsible use of IT.
