Are you sharing too much online?

This is actually a quiz, not a story. The quiz section doesn't support the type of quiz I was trying to make so I posted it here instead.
This quiz can apply to Quibblo or any other account that you have online that you use to connect with people who you DON'T know in real life.
Add up your points and check the total score at the bottom of the page!

Chapter 1

8. Do you share ANY of the following: phone number, home address, social security number, password(s)?
- No (0 points)
- Yes, one of them (10 points) (No, it's not a typo. It really is worth ten points.)
- Yes, more than one (1 million points!!!)

Now add up your total score. If you scored more than 7, you have enough information for someone you know in real life to identify you... and also, a potential stalker could track you down. I'm not kidding. Please consider removing some personal information if you want to keep your identity private.
P.S. If you answered yes to question 8, you MUST delete said information ASAP!
