Traveling This Holiday? Don't Post It On Social Media

Posted:

If you're going away for the holidays, don't announce it on social media.

Posting on Facebook and Twitter that you're heading to Florida for the week tells crooks to come on in!

You should also consider changing your privacy settings on sites like Facebook so only friends can see your status updates.

Be cautious when using the "Check In" feature on mobile social media apps, especially when out of town.

Don't brag about high-end purchases online so you don't give crooks a reason to hit your home.

Make sure to remove boxes for any high-end items so they don't draw attention to those driving down your street.

Ask your neighbors to keep an eye out while your gone and have them pick up your newspaper and mail.
