When Uploading A Screenshot of a Website, Be Aware Of Your Browser Tabs
When uploading a screenshot of your website (or someone else's website), make sure your email address (or portion of your email address) is not exposed when taking a screenshot. I uploadeGGd my screenshot of pagination for my website and a part of my email address has been exposed over the web and I had to retake the screenshot without it. If you have a webmail opened in one browser tab such as GMail/Google Workspace, your browser tab will look similar to this:
Inbox (5): yourname(at)your...
That tab is exposed by the
<title> tag inside a website. Here's what I mean:
<title>Inbox (5): yourname(at)yourdomainname(dot)com</title>
<h1>Your E-Mail Provider</h1>
<p>Your email messages go here.</p>
Instead of "@", I use "(at)" so that spam harvesters and bots won't harvest any email addresses in my website; however, I won't give away any of my 170+ email addresses at all. Pay special attention to the title of web pages that you currently have opened. By "title," I meant your browser tabs. My advice is do not leave anything sensitive unattended. I hope I can be of help to everyone. Be safe out there in the web!

About Grayson Peddie
Hello! I am a web developer and I have a passion for the world of Information Technology. I currently hold 4 CompTIA certificates (A+, Network+, Security+, and CySA+) including Cisco's CCNA
(Cisco Certified Network Associate) certificate. Speaking of web development, I am a web accessibility enthusiast. I make sure that users of screen readers and keyboard users who cannot use a
mouse can be able to access my website with just only the keyboard. Plus, I have learned a whole lot about Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
So what are my hobbies? Aside from web development,
I watch Star Trek: The Next Generation from time to time during the nights. I listen to music from the likes of David Arkenstone, Yanni, Checkfield, Cucso, Looreena McKennitt, Clannad, 2002, Enya,
and even soundtrack from EPCOT Center (1982-1994), Tomorrowland, WALL-E, and TRON: Legacy. Oh, yes! Tomorrowland, TRON: Legacy, and WALL-E are the three movies I watch during Friday nights and
every Friday night is my pizza night. I'm an optimist who likes to see what kind of future the world would look like. That's why I follow The Venus Project
on Twitter (here's the website to The Venus Project. I do have a lot to cover in my introductory article
in my website, so if you want to go in-depth and know more about me, that is the article to visit.
