    I'm scared they will track me down and put me in prison based on my online activity. I am very careful about what I do online to be safe from this, but I am still scared I will get a warning or something which will stop me from getting into med school. Can you please tell me how to stay safe online?

    Don't do stupid **** online?

    In seriousness, I doubt the police have time for you. Be more worried about what employers can find by checking your social media presence.

    Don't do illegal things online and there will be nothing to get a warning over. To be honest, if you're torrenting a few movies I highly doubt the police are tracking you, but if you're hacking the Russians then you might have a problem. Which begs the question; what are you doing online that has you this worried?

    The police really aren't analysing every single persons online activity, it would be impossible to do that for every single person. You should still avoid doing things which are potentially illegal.

    I am very careful about this so I don't think I have done anything online to warrant going to prison. I am just worried about the police tracking me and am aware of police all around me. I can't trust anyone.

    In that case I think you're just being paranoid. If you've done nothing wrong, the police aren't out to get you.

    Let's be honest, unless you're joining ISIS, hacking the FBI, or viewing inappropriate porn they just aren't going to give a feck. And if you are doing any of the aforementioned, then you deserve to get caught.

    I hope you logic is right. I really hope so.

    I might be a bit paranoid, but I think it is justified. I have paranoid schizophrenia so maybe I am not doing so well at the moment. I am aware, however, that I will turn up on TV based on my actions online, and this is true

    I guess so. I hope you are right.
