Tips to avoid being a recorded target

Cyber-safety experts say there are steps you can take to protect yourself, including:

• Treat your cellphone and laptop like your cash card - keep them on you and in your sights at all times.

• Assume anyone holding a cellphone or other hand-held devices with photo capabilities may be taking your picture.

• Don't do anything in range of that camera that you don't want the world to see.

• Point web cameras up toward ceiling when not in use or close laptops with cameras.

• A camera on a laptop can be in use even if screen appears blank.

• Periodically use Google to search your name, your screen name or any other identifying information to ensure your image or information isn't being shared.

• The quicker you respond, the better chances you have that the images have not been copied.
