Identity Tidbits

I am sure everyone who reads online articles, blogs etc has seen the talk about Facebook being used to gather data for Identity theft. I stumbled onto one little tidbit. Amazon. Would you believe that your birthdate (minus year) and email used for your Amazon account shows up publically to everyone by default?

You should log into your account. Click Yourname’s Amazon the click the “Your Profile”. Make sure to edit it and change your email and birthdate lines to show for you only. Then on the right side do the view page as seen by Everyone. I sure hope I accidently set that and it was not Default.  If it was default Amazon ought to be ashamed.
