Academic digital footprint

Find out about your academic digital footprint, and what you can do about it.

Every time you do something involving the internet you leave a trace of your activity, this is your digital footprint.

Your digital footprint persists and grows with time as all of your ongoing internet activity accumulates.  

It's the data you leave behind when you go online. It's what you've said, what others have said about you, where you've been, images you're tagged in, personal information, social media profiles, and much more.
