    They might not feel that it is very easy to get his/her information and only her close friends can see her personal information, such as home address and private pictures. Moreover, he or she might think that this happens very rare and the chance of it happening to him or she is very low.

  18. (b) many people are not aware of digital footprints as they think that private/incognito mode can solve everything, which is not true. Plus, they think that the odds of people tracking our digital footprint s very uncommon, hence they neglect their cyber safety and make their information public for everyone to see.

  19. (C) Having talks and lectures about these dangers should be compulsory for all schools to show and teach about.

  20. a) I leave a footprint for whatever I do online, my actions can always be traced and may affect me in the future, e.g. job interview, the employer may do background checks.

  21. b) people think that by deleting their history or using incognito they can stop people from knowing where they have been on the internet, but they actually leave a digital footprint on the website as well.
