Your digital footprints

It is common knowledge we leave digital footprints when using computers and internet, but are you aware how many?

To map an ordinary persons relations and activity based on the digital footprints, requires a huge amount of effort.

To uncover a persons true identity, e.g. a person suspected to be military intelligence requires additional effort as it is expected the country’s military intelligence might have done something to hide the person’s identity.

This is why reading a report like this the one linked below is much more interesting as it describes how bellingcat.com has uncovered one person’s true identity and partly mapped the person’s activity in relation to different assignments the person in question might have been part of.

What I would like to emphasize is our digital footprints and how easy it is to map ordinary people over time.
