For instance, if your real name is “Kate Frisbatch” from Los Angeles, you might create a new email account such as “[email protected]* and your username might be “K818 Angel”.– Use this new email address and username *exclusively* for your herpes-related online activities.Most of us are concerned about privacy online and do not want our sensitive, personal information to be seen by the rest of the world.If you want to take extra precautions to keep your herpes status private online, we recommend the following: – Create a brand new email account and username on Gmail or Yahoo that does not use your real name or any other words that too closely identify who you are.– If you join any herpes groups on social media (such as Meetup, Facebook, Yahoo, or other community sites), do NOT accept friend requests from anyone you haven’t already met, except for group admins/moderators.
