Personal details

Things such as home address, telephone numbers, location, and birthdate are private information that you shouldn’t make available to an easily-accessed place such as the internet. Sharing these details is not only unnecessary but also puts your safety in the line.

Work-related complaints

Complaining about your job online is never a good idea since you’re putting your source of income in danger. You should always remember that almost everyone uses the internet nowadays, even companies to monitor their employees.

Financial information
