Question Is it safe to share your Date of Birth online?

I just don't know. ;__;

Honestly it depends on who you're sharing it with.

Your birth date alone shouldn't be a biggy. Just make sure you don't share your address and similar details unless you're 100% positive it's secure.

Oh, and don't ever share your credit card number unless you absolutely believe whoever and wherever you share it (with). I had to learn that the hard way.

Then again, it depends on who you are sharing it with. If it's something public, I'd advise you to not share it.


There are a lot of sickos loose on the internet ma cher, it isn't safe anymore.

So say I don't share my location? Is it still possible. Or does it make any difference when there are websites like 192.com?
