Requesting personal photos or information are removed

Photos posted online without consent can increase digital exposure. Taking steps to remove sensitive photos posted online (whether first-hand or through a third party, such as a friend, relative, etc.) protects organisations and individuals.

Why is it important?

Personal information and photos online can enable identity theft. This can provide an entry point into an organisation.

By requesting personal information and photos are removed, people and organisations are less at risk.
