Hide Your Keys, Hide Your Wife, and Be Safe Online
Your online reputation can affect your job search or your college admissions. More bosses and universities are reporting looking up candidates on social media sites. So how can you make sure your 'public profile' is a positive one?
The website www.myID.com is a new tool designed to help manage your online reputation. It continually scans for personal information and provides real-time alerts of dangerous postings. myID.com also offers SafetyWeb.com, which helps protect student’s social media postings, which can affect their college admissions and job searches later in life.
Both myID.com and SafetyWeb scour the internet (100+ social networks) for questionable activity. Visit their sites for more information.
Along the same lines, ProtectedPix is a private photo sharing website that allows users to have complete control over their digital pictures.
ProtectedPix was created in light of the countless stories of being denied job offers, career losses, online misrepresentation, college application refusals, and personal safety being compromised…all due to personal photos being seen by the wrong person.
This new service protects images from being captured, reducing the risk that they will be shared with unexpected people or used for unintended purposes. Access is completely customized and can be revoked at any time by the user. ProtectedPix offers a safe way to share pictures and protect users’ privacy, digital identity, and reputation. Visit www.ProtectedPix.com to keep your moments locked up!
