Can employers and colleges track everything about your life?

0 votes
Recruiters and deans check people's social media but can they trace fake emails like if the email isn't your name and doesn't have your real date of birth, can they still track it. Or if you have a fake Facebook name with a fake profile picture?

Here is a quick way to find out what your employers and anyone else can find about you. go on google and type in your first and last name. look around through the different websites and pictures that come up. After that look up anything else that you provide your employer with and make sure everything is clean. A good way to avoid any problems is to make all of your social media accounts private and keep an eye on what your friends are posting about you.

They can only see / track stuff that is publicly available, plus what you give them in your paperwork.

Once you are a registered student or employee, they can search your possessions / locker / room / computer and monitor your internet use while at college / work..

It's in the fine print of virtually all contracts, that you give permission. So, they do not need warrants.
You ask to be at that place, it's a condition of them accepting you.

And note that fake information or breaking the rules on facebook or any other web site is technically a criminal offence - it's an "unauthorised access" offence under computer misuse laws.
They may not bother to prosecute if you are not doing anything malicious but they are likely to ban you from the site (under any ID) if they notice - possibly forever.

And as a point of note, trolls do get prosecuted; something like 2,000 of them in the UK alone last year.

Be careful and follow the rules, it's not worth possibly ruining your entire life by getting a criminal record.
