The digitalization of information and the popularity of social media may put consumer privacy at risk more now than ever. Some social media users, teenagers especially, may be unaware that the information they share \u2014\u00a0from their location to their paycheck \u2014\u00a0could be used for identity theft and fraud. About 92% of teenagers post their real name, 82% list their date of birth and 71% show their city or town of residence on their social profiles,\u00a0according to Pew Research Center. While oversharing has become a problem, consumers could stop it by being careful what they post on social media.\r\nHere are three kinds of information to never share on social media.\r\n1. Driver's License Details\r\nSome users may be tempted to post their first driver's license on social media to boast about their accomplishment or laugh at a silly photo. However, a valid ID card, such as a driver's license, will contain your date of birth, picture and other personal identifiable information that thieves could copy.\r\nAvoid sharing personal information that may lead to\u00a0identity theft, including your date of birth and Social Security number.\u00a0Access to this information could allow identity thieves to open new lines of credit, committing fraud and wrecking your credit score in the process. You can monitor your credit for changes that may signal identity theft by checking\u00a0your free annual credit reports\u00a0or using a\u00a0credit monitoring service. You can also check\u00a0your credit scores for free every month on Credit.com.\r\n2. Vacation Itinerary &\u00a0Location Data\r\nWhile you are excited to share pictures about your fun vacation to exotic locations, do not share information about your getaway\u00a0beforehand on social media, such as how long you will be gone and where you are going.\r\nNot only do potential thieves know that you will be out of your home for that period of time, they could take advantage of your absence and burglarize your property. If you also use geotagging for your posts to show your location or list the city where you live,\u00a0burglars could use this information to target\u00a0your home.\r\n3. Bank Account Information\r\nPosting any kind of financial information in a public space could perpetuate fraud. Although some people might use social media to post about their first paycheck from a new job in their excitement, they should not display images of their paycheck because it contains bank account information. In 2014, law enforcement authorities charged a huge identity theft ring that looked for victims' financial information via\u00a0Instagram postings of paychecks,\u00a0CNNMoney reported.\r\nThe victims\u00a0showed images of their paychecks with the hashtag #myfirstpaycheck, which\u00a0held bank account and routing information. With this information, the thieves were able to make fake checks and steal from businesses.
