Do I know too much about you?
I mean that literally: Have you released too much information about yourself online? Are you sure? How do you know?
A Pew Center report out this week found that 50 percent of Americans are worried about the amount of information available about them online. That's up from 33 percent in 2009. What's more, 86 percent of people surveyed had tried at least one method of hiding their online activities -- or avoiding being tracked at all.
And something else: This morning, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the personal info, including names and Social Security numbers, of 4,457 customers of the Georgia Department of Labor was accidentally leaked in an email -- to 1,000 people. The department's response? Tell recipients of the leaked information to "immediately delete the file attached to the [previous] e-mail without opening it," according to a statement.
So: We're more worried about the amount of information that's out there, about us. And also: That info is occasionally leaked by the agencies who collect it.
Are you worried? How do you protect yourself?
