Just curious to know how safe you feel online and more importantly how safe you make yourself.

Some things to comment on;

  • Do you think you are untracable?
  • Would you like more safety info?
  • Are you safe online?
  • Are you safe in SL?

I think I am 'Good' on this poll.
I try not to give out a lot on things, i.e. I have a bebo but I don't say where I live or my age. (but some of these things might be able to be figured out) I think bebo is pretty safe, because I don't accept friends I don't know/like, and although it is public, you would have to know my username to type that in to find me. Which I doubt a stranger would guess.
I think SL is safe, especially our space here. I haven't given anything out traceable to me, well unless you count my vague location re outreach discussions.

  • But I often get worried about internet people finding me, it's strange...I often feel like closing pages down (e.g bebo).
  • But, then again, I think I'm cautious about what I do. It's not obvious any way to find/contact me, which some people are so I would think anyone interested in doing that may not bother with me.
I don't like the idea someone can trace my IP, but then again I tend to think with my second bulleted approach (above).

Tibs.
(p.s This is an interesting post faz, good idea)

I think you do have to be careful on public things like Bebo because it's so easy to put information that people could track you down with on it.
You seem to be keeping yourself anonymous quite well and i hope other people are doing the same!  ;)

Where can they trace it from? I know that, here, only the admins are able to get at your IP (other than you). And giving the IP to any server you go to is required so it can send the data back :P

I don't put much personal info at all on the web and I think the computer has enough firewalls etc (it certainly seems that way from the number of 'update available's that appear). However, I probably give away a lot more than I intend to, so I'm not excellent.

I wasn't meaning SL people tracing IPs as such, but like some evil genius person who may attack my computer!! BOO THEM....
Sorry, anyway, umm yes you are right about things like bebo giving away info, but I tend to think no-one would be too bothered about me.
Haha faz, did you mean I am keeping myself fairly anonymous on here (SL)?
Well I think most people are.

Well, hope to meet you at the Outreach and then I won't be very anonymous! It might be tricky, if I'm standing right there...
