Does Using Social Media On Holiday Assist Thieves?

There was once a time when holiday makers would have to wait a couple of weeks after their trip had ended, in order to have photographs to show their friends and family. Now holiday makers can take a picture via their smart phone and upload it on to a social media platform within minutes, so that their friends and family can see how their holiday is going. However by doing this, holiday makers are unintentionally showing “would be robbers” that their home is unoccupied and therefore inadvertently making their house a potential target for a robbery.

A comparison website has recently stated that during the course of investigating home insurance claims, some insurance companies are examining the social media activities of their clients. Consequently an insurer may decide that finding a posting of a client's holiday snaps on say Facebook or Instagram, as being careless should there have been a break in whilst their client was abroad. As a result of this, a client's theft claim could then be rejected.

We would recommend that you wait until you return home, to share your holiday photographs as a precautionary measure. Although sharing your pictures will be tempting, it is best to be prudent, especially if it prevents a break in to your home.
