People think things are free when they get something in exchange for some personal data. Maybe it is free, if you don’t value your privacy. There is a youtube video that I hope will help people realize they should be more protective of their personal data.
The information provided on youtube for this video says:
You’re more at risk of identity fraud than you think. Sharing personal details like your date of birth, address and phone number can make you vulnerable. Don’t make it easy for identity fraudsters. Start by setting your privacy settings. – http://www.identityfraud.org.uk

How much information about yourself do you freely give away without realizing where it goes and who might be able to access it?
