ABSTRACT

It states that personal information gathered in commercial forums may prove valuable for public safety but at the same time using the outdated or inaccurate underlying data could do more harm than good. It mentions that passengers who have their digital footprints clean need not strip off shoes, overcoats or unpack laptops in airports.
