The Internet offers a wealth of information that would have taken days, weeks, and even months to access by conventional means. However, this accessibility comes with a price. With all the social networking sites a person’s private information can be viewed by everyone. This project involves searching the Internet for personal and private information and finding ways to protect it.
This project will explore how easy it is to collect information on the Internet about yourself and others. By searching for personal information we will be able to see what kind of information is available and how we can take precautions to keep our information private.
