Our Mayfield Branch Manager Shaun Trindall shares his tips on safe social networking.
As much as social networking can be about sharing parts of your life with others, sharing too much personal information can be hazardous and impact the safety of your finances.
Information that you use to identify yourself with your financial institution shouldn’t be publicly shared with others. These can include:
- Full date of birth
- Telephone number
- Full address
- Drivers Licence number
- Medicare number
- Passport number
Posting this information for the world to see can make you an easy target for identity theft.
Be social, but be smart about what you share and stay safe.
