Your status update, even your social media profile, could put you at risk of identity theft or other crimes.

KSAT-12 Crime Analyst Eddie Gonzalez has some tips to keep you safe online:

  • When signing up for social websites, put limited information about your true identity.
  • Activate the privacy setting so that you have control of who visits your site
