Digital footprints and timestamps

Our third module will teach you how to investigate digital footprints and timestamps. You’ll learn how easy it is to find information about people online, and how to better protect your own information. We’ll also show you how to read time stamps on the different social networks, and the challenges of trying to find out when a photo or video was actually captured versus when they were uploaded.
