Privacy means different things to different people. But whatever it means to you, your privacy is important and shouldn't be ignored no matter how old you are.
To help you, Privacy Victoria's Youth Advisory Group has released an information booklet 'Keep your super hero safe!' aimed at young people. The booklet provides advice about how to keep personal information safe from identity theft.
"Much like super heroes, everyone has a 'secret identity' which they would prefer to keep private. This 'secret identity' is information about yourself, which you would rather not share with the whole world," said Youth Advisory Group member Marcel Boulat.
"There are many privacy risks for young people. One is the social ramifications of sharing information online. In today's highly connected world, it is entirely possible that anything you share will be disseminated to a far wider audience than you intended."
Check out the booklet for more information about how to keep your identity safe.
