What information would you refuse to provide when filling out a form on a web page?

Question:
What information would you refuse to provide when filling out a form on a web page?

Answer:
This depends on the website that is asking for the information:

If you are buying a product on-line then you would have to provide your full name, address, phone number, email address and credit card information.

If you are buying something on-line then make sure that the company website has a secure sign up page. Look for the lock on your browser.

  1. On Microsoft Explorer the lock is at the top to the right of the address bar.
  2. On Fire Fox the lock is at the bottom right hand corner.

You may consider investigating the company website to see if there are any complaints of fraud.

For other applications you can usually get away with your name and email address.

Only provide the information that you think would be necessary for the application that you are using.

Never provide your data of birth.

Never provide your Social Insurance Number.

You may also consider having a extra email address to use for sign ups. You can get one of those from either hotmail or yahoo. Anything not too important can use this email address and if they get spammed then its not too serious.
