How private do your personal information on the internet?

Are you really iffy about telling people your name, country, town, credit card information, mother's maiden name, etc?


Or do you not really mind all that much?


I for one, don't mind all that much. People can know my name, where I live, I don't care too much. I won't give them info that would give them access to things (UG password (looking at your Devourke) facebook password, etc)) but I don't mind telling people my name or location or whatever


If you are pretty private about it, how come?



edit: that ****ing thread title

I meant "How private do you keep your personal information on the internet?"

I went full retard for a minute

I don't give my address or email out or anything (unless it is someone I know and trust) but other than that I don't really care.

The way I see it, if someone really wanted my info bad enough to go and look for it, there are ways for them to find it regardless of what I post online. Same goes for everyone else.

If you're online, you have an IP address. I can (fairly easily) track your IP address and find out your ISP and a rough area of where you live. After that it's just a matter of contacting your ISP and getting you name, or getting enough info (legally or illegally) to find out the rest. It's not that hard to do really, it's just a matter if you care enough to spend the time and energy to track all of that stuff down...

You don't even need to do that. There's websites that allow you to figure this stuff out. Whether they're legal or not depends on the laws in your country.

I've posted the city where I live and the school I go to but I won't post my address. There's certain things I want to keep private and I'm sure no one here wants to visit me anytime soon so whatever.

Im very unprivate, for instance I checked my facebook profile details the other night and apparently my religious views are Lemmy is God and my political view is simply Tsar Nicholas II. So apparently everyone can see how ******ed I was when I was 15.
