Considering any video that you upload to the YouTube website can be viewed by just about anyone with an online connection, you may want to be careful with the amount of information that you disclose. As an example, if you are doing a video blog, you may not want to give your real name or at least not your entire name. Additionally it is important that you don’t mention where you live. If you would like, you might want to outline the state that you reside in, but never give the town or city, especially in case you disclose your title.

As stated above, it’s wise to use your best judgment. Of course, you can post a video on YouTube if you prefer to do so, but just make sure that you are doing so safely.
