Digital citizenship can be defined as the norms of appropriate, responsible behavior when using technology. Below are the 9 P's for Proactive Knowledge:
Do you know how to create a secure password? Do you know that email and online banking should have a higher level of security and never use the same passwords as other sites?
Do you know how to protect your private information like address, email, and phone number?

While this information can't be used to identify you, you need to choose who you will share it with.
Are you aware that some private things may show up in photographs and that you may not want to post those pictures? Do you know how to turn off a geotagging feature?
Do you understand copyright, Creative Commons, and how to generate a license for their own work? Do you respect intellectual property rights of those who create it?
Do you know how to get permission for work you use, and do you know how to cite it?
Do you understand what viruses, malware, phishing, ransomware, and identity theft are, and how these things work?
Do you understand the professionalism of academics versus decisions about how you will interact in their social lives? Do you know about etiquette and online grammar?
How they want to be perceived online? Do you realize they you a digital tattoo that is almost impossible to erase?
