Types of Digital Footprint or Electronic Footprint
As far as the question of how we leave behind these digital footprints is concerned, it can happen in many ways. They can be divided into two main categories:
- Active digital footprints – Active digital footprints are the ones you leave behind actively or intentionally, by yourself.
- Passive digital footprints – Passive digital footprints are the ones you do not know about, for instance, undeclared cookies or tools that may reveal your location.
