Cyber Safe Parent: Keeping your address, other information private online

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Can you keep your private information truly private in today's cyberworld?

More and more of our personal information is easily available online.

"With all of the modern technology that's out there, and various websites that are out there, it really does become a lot more tricky to safeguard your personal information as far as home address and things like that," said Lieutenant Allen Larsen with Las Vegas Metro police.

The leaked Supreme Court draft opinion detailing a decision that indicated the court intends to overturn Roe v. Wade pushed protesters to take to the streets outside the private homes of Supreme Court justices.

Try to see if your address is trackable online by searching for yourself.

"Type in your name and Google 'home address'," said Lt. Larsen.

So what can you do as a homeowner to keep your information private?... Read More
