Don’t Share When You’re Away From Home
Don't put yourself in danger by updating social media and sharing while you are away from home. Wait until you get back. By revealing such specifics while you're gone, you are providing information that could be used by criminals to break into your house.
Another common scam involves individuals going away on vacation and having their email accounts compromised by cyber-criminals who contact the person's friends or family with requests for help, claiming that the person was robbed in a foreign country while on vacation and needs money.
