Whether it's talking about going on holiday, being away from home in general, or even posting about your new car or house, our study, in partnership with security experts Yale, has found that there is a clear link between social posting and crime statistics.
Simply hover over your city on our interactive map below, and you'll find how high the risk is for burglaries in your area, followed by risk scores out of 10 for the following categories: Out of Home, New Home, On Holiday and New Car. (Unfortunately, police forces in Scotland don’t release geographic crime data we so we can’t currently include these figures on our map).
Once you've found out just how vulnerable to crime people in your area are, read our helpful guide to staying safe on social media, our social media crime facts, plus Yale's top five security tips.
Swinton’s home insurance team is here to help you with any concerns you may have about using social media, and give you the confidence you need to stay safe.
