Social media & Burglary



According to a recent poll, around one in ten British holidaymakers share details on social media about the length and location of their trip before heading abroad, while one in eight post pictures and updates whilst overseas.

Going away on holiday is exciting for anyone but it can also make a burglars day to know your home will be empty.

Be wary of posting any information on social media sites about your whereabouts and make sure your privacy settings are correctly set. Assume any information you divulge will be there forever and viewable by everyone.
