Private detective gives safety tips on what not to do

Private Investigator Jade Savage (@jadeesavv) shares privacy tips, big case developments, and the occasional makeup tutorial on TikTok, with her latest posts garnering attention as users discuss their privacy tactics and how social media impacts security.

“Please stop doing these things and be safe!” is the caption for the first video in their safety tip series.

Savage’s first tip is “stop leaving your blinds open,” as she says she looked through windows during an investigation to gather information on an individual.

“If I go to surveillance, I can see everything in your house. I zoom in with my little camera and I can see what you see on TV… It’s like a gold mine,” she says.

She also tells viewers to stop “tagging” their location on social media while they’re still there. Savage explains a situation where she couldn’t figure out why the person wasn’t at their house, but later saw they had posted their location at the coffee shop across the street – and that’s where she found them.

“Stop leaving a footprint where people can find you,” she says.

Similarly, Savage recommends not tagging places you frequent, like the gym, a coffee shop, or even your work place, as it can provide information about your habits or patterns.

“You don’t want people who don’t know you to start knowing you,” she warns.

Her last two suggestions are to always be aware of your surroundings in parking lots and if you feel someone is following you, drive to the police station.

Users share their thoughts in the comments section.

“[Not gonna lie] I expected all PIs to be grown men in fedoras,” commented one user. Savage replies, “What I like best is that people don’t expect me to become a PI, it’s kind of a superpower in the industry.”

“I have ADHD. They will never learn my habits because I don’t have any,” says another user.

“I really can’t stand being in a house with the blinds open at night. Idk how so many people do it,” shared a third.

In a video for part two, Savage offers more safety tips like locking windows and garage doors.

Her next piece of advice is not to share anything when you go on vacation, because that’s like telling the internet that your home is vulnerable to a possible robbery.

“Don’t tell the internet your house will be left unattended for seven days while you’re on vacation,” she says. “There’s a lot of home alone.”

At the end of the video, Savage says you should never share your workplace and if you’re a mom, don’t share where your kids go to school.

“You literally leave a footprint, a pattern on the internet for people to find you and your kids,” she says.

In the comments, users thank Savage for the tips and agree with her advice.

“Family vloggers literally reveal every little detail about their kids. Absolutely no regard for their safety,” says one user.

“Totally agree, leaving a digital footprint is really dangerous, thanks for the tips,” comments another.
