  • Do you help others sign up to Facebook or get an email account but gloss over the privacy issues because you don’t really know what they mean?
  • Do you want to protect yourself online but don’t know where to start?

If you answered ‘YES’ to at least one of these questions then Manage Your Digital Footprint is for you.
