Be mindful of who you give your email address to as it can lead to spam emails

Whenever someone asks for your email address – whether it’s online, in-person, or even on printed materials – think carefully before revealing it. Email addresses posted online can be seen by anyone, and if a company you’ve given it to saves it in its database, that can potentially be sold or shared, leading to the receipt of unwanted emails. Many email services provide the ability to create multiple addresses, so make use of this feature to ensure your security.
