What is my digital footprint?

Your Digital Footprint is the trail of data you create when using the internet.  

It includes everything you visit including:

Remember:

Each and every action you take online leaves a trace. This builds up over time to create a unique online profile.  It is important to control your Digital Footprint in order to make a good impression to future employers.
