Oversharing on social media while on vacation can put you and your property at risk. Here are a few do’s & don’ts to keep in mind before you set sail!

Do not post flight information online – ever.  Sharing flight information can lead to nefarious parties social engineering your co-workers or family members, or even provide criminals with the ability to “virtually kidnap” you.

Do not post photos or text about your trip until you are home - Of course, you want to share your photos… But does the world need to know that your house is empty and available to be robbed?

Do not “Check In” when away – For the same reason as you should not share your photos before it is safe to do so, do not “Check In;” why make the whole world aware that you are not home?

Think about what you are posting before you post – Could the information help criminals target you?
