Back up your digital life with Facebook

Facebook is trying to be help by helping you back up your digital like. If you give it permission just once it will automatically synch the photos you take on your phone to Facebook, forever.

Then you can decide what pictures to make public on your page. Our cyber expert Theresa Payton says you should be cynical about this.

So when you photo is posted, with the date and time, your geographical location, and then they put facial recognition to work and boom your picture is not for sale. Someone is buying all this information about you.

Plus, technical glitches happen and a picture you want to keep private may become public.

Theresa does recommend that if you put your photos or an information in private storage, do your research first, so you know where your stuff is and who has access to it.
