Last week, TheStreet.com did a great job pulling together 9 tips for protecting your Online Identity.
There are 2 more I'd like to add to the list though.
First, I'd like to borrow one more from my bio to compliment this list: Beware of free public wifi. Don't use anything labeled as "free public wifi" to log into your email, social networking or online banking accounts. Thieves create and use these unsecured networks to swipe your logon credentials.
Second, there is seemingly an endless amount of quizzes and/or apps on social networks that ask you for personal information (find your Royal Name, or some such thing). Many of them divulge personal information that can be used to retrieve your account information. So please, be careful what you're sharing.
