First day photos – beware what you share!

It’s an exciting time for many families with children starting back to school, with many going for the first time, and we all love sharing those moments with friends and family.

But as parents, we need to be careful about how much information we are putting online. A simple first day photo shows a school uniform, your child’s face and often name and home address. Unfortunately there are some internet users who will misuse this data, which may endanger your child.

While most of us teach our children not to share too much information online, sometimes without thinking we can be guilty of doing just that. Check your social media privacy settings are secure, or better yet, use private messaging or a closed group to share with family and friends.
