The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has pushed out a list of tips for Canadians regarding how to protect their privacy while using social media.
“What may have seemed like a good idea at the time may not seem like such a good idea months or years later,” reads the page.
The list also includes watching out for scams, remembering to log-off, closing unused accounts and deleting your data.
The OPC also notes, while businesses are legally responsible for protecting a user’s personal data, once the information is out there, you can’t control what happens to it.
