In this digital age, we often disclose information online more than what we intend.With this situation at hand Trend Micro warns, “Everything we do online leaves behind a digital footprint that can lead cyber criminals back.”

On a recent survey conducted by Trend Micro, results reveal almost 70% of the respondents are very active on social networking sites, accessing their accounts at least once a day.“Filipinos are highly switched on. However, they should be mindful about strengthening social network privacy settings. Trend Micro urges Filipinos not to be complacent online. Personal information is valuable to cyber criminals, for their own gain, create false identities for criminal use or even leverage your network to target your friends and family,” said Terrence Tang, Senior Director of Consumer Business, APAC Center Sales and Marketing, Trend Micro.
