There have been quite a few questions in recent history in which people ask if it is safe to post the following things in publicly available places:

Full Name, Date of Birth, Address, Email, Phone Number, IP, Credit Card, SSN ...

Does a canonical q/a exist for this already?

Should there be one?

Could it exist without being highly opinionated?

  • Wouldn't a canonical question just result in "use your common sense" answers and neglect that there are differences? I find the per-category answers (e.g. for your full name or your date of birth) pretty useful. – Arminius Mar 30 '17 at 16:09
  • well the answer to most questions could be "use common sense" ... problem is that it is not so common. Multiple different questions does make sense but I didnt know which ones where out there already. – CaffeineAddiction Mar 30 '17 at 16:38
  • Are you suggesting one question for all types of personal information, e.g. "What kind of personal information can I post online?" That sounds to broad to me. – Anders Apr 2 '17 at 21:50
