Get Real Sweepstakes: Week #1 – Win a HD HERO Naked Camera!

Security & Privacy

UPDATE: This sweepstakes is now closed. The winner will be contacted and then announced via our Facebook page.

You may have heard about the recent “Facebook burglaries.” Using the world”s most popular social network, a group of thieves allegedly went on spree that raked in over $100,000 in stolen goods.

A little reporting on the crimes revealed that two of the cases in the spree involved Facebook. In those cases, the perpetrators had “friended” their targets, gaining access to the homeowners’ wall posts.

A PR rep from Facebook offered this advice: If you wouldn’t tell someone in person that you are leaving town, you probably shouldn’t use Facebook to tell him or her.

In real life, you don’t make friends with anyone who comes along, and you don’t share your travel plans with strangers. People do things online that they would NEVER do in the real world.

That’s why over the next 6 weeks we’re going to be reminding you of some smart online safety practices and celebrating the launch of F-Secure Internet Security 2011.

Just answer the question below on the comments of this post and you’ll be entered to win an incredible HD HERO Naked wearable camera for you PLUS F-Secure Internet Security 2011 for you and a friend. You can see the complete rules for this giveaway here.

Here’s the question for week #1: Where in the real world are you?

We don’t want to know your exact location right now because you’re too smart to reveal your exact location to complete strangers. Just give us an idea. You can tell us which planet, hemisphere, continent, country, state, province, city or neighborhood you spend most of your time. To make it easy, you can post a link to a picture that answers the question.

Again, once you’ve read the rules, all you have to do to for your chance to win is to comment on this post. Good luck!

Im in the US Close to a border where every summer along with the stifling heat the bats draw visitors as they leave the bridge every night. I live in a city that we are glad to call weird. where live music is everywhere
Can you guess where?

F-Secure is a must-follow (on Twitter) for any teacher who helps look after a school network. Lots of useful advice.

Located in a Canadian city that gets very little snow (as confirmed during a recent sporting spectacle) and that is named after a British explorer with a Dutch name.

Thanks for the kind words, Peter. Find great value in your tweets, as well.

One of the few cities that would (or could) be ideal for both a winter and a summer games.

i live in the country which is located between Mainland China, Japan,Philippines,also a wonderful island,where the world biggest semiconductor comany-TSMC(Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) comes from .

I`m in the most beautiful city from my country…Count Dracula has a castle here…so beware. Come and visit 🙂 Or let me have that camera so i can share with you these beautiful places (Brasov, Romania)

I am in the UK, about 5 miles away from the City where a King died in battle, there are rockets and jets and the rugby team is a butch of big cats

At the office watching a webcam that records front yard of our house. 3 dogs guard inside 🙂

Hi, i am near the bavarian ocean. It is located one hour south from the great german beerfestival (Oktoberfest)!
Here i have a train station next to me and a harbor for excurion boats.

Trapped in the So Cal desert where its still too hot but the traffic isn’t bad, so it’s a tradeoff I’ll take area of the Caochella Valley called La Quinta.

I live in a country that has celebrated 200 years of Independence, some says that is the biggest city in the world…and it’s a very very nice town =D

“Here’s the question for week #1: Where in the real world are you?
We don’t want to know your exact location right now because you’re too smart […]”

It’s a trap!

“11. The name of the winner will be announced via the F-Secure Twitter channel, F-Secure Facebook page and F-Secure’s Safe and Savvy blog once the winner has been contacted. By entering, the entrant agrees that his/her name, country and/or picture can be published at F-Secure’s aforementioned channels if he/she wins.”

Nice try internet detective, I bet that everyone taking part in this contest gets a message that they have won and they are asked to provide their post address so that their “prize” can be delivered to them.

1. the first step of avoiding a trap is in knowing that it exists
2. counter trap
3. ???
4. profit

very well, lets see how it goes, I be living in this forest here
above the arctic circle, I wonder if someone manages to triangulate the location from topography.

We admire the healthy skepticism! And appreciate the courage.

We figure if you’d tell a person what planet you are on in the real world, it’s okay through a blog.

I’m in the city that some people believe to be the gateway to fall into satan’s world, you’ll never guess where 😉

I live in capital city of country where Czech, Slovaks, Polands, Italians and Germans and lot of other nations go for summer holidays. 🙂
Small country for great vacation.

I live in a town in Alberta, Canada, that shares its name with a place in Ontario, and a famous Canadian recording artist. We have a chicken lady. 😉

I live in the country , where there is the highest peak that none other countries have.It is the place where the Light of Asia,Lord Gautam Buddha was born.It is the small country in the lap of Himalayans between two monster countries.It is the place where Gorkhalis were born and get trained.

I live in the country with highest peak of the world.It is the country where Light of Asia, Lord Gautam Buddha was born. It is the place where brave Gorkhalis were born.
It lies between two monster countries India and China.

In the “Real” world, with daywalkers and sun shining upon us all, we tend to call this place home.
Located just west of F-Secure, and a short swim southeast from iceland, you enter the fine fjords of this little place with it’s rich heritage and a passion for oil:)

Hi, I’m in the uk, about 60 miles north east of London, in the countryside, next to a lake, the weather is cloudy, with a cold north wind blowning. R.

OK, I cannot beat Andi (seriously, no mail???), but definitely flyover country – extreme southeast Nebraska.

I’m in the US near the confluence of two rivers, one that flows north and another that flows south. Waiting for the floods to come next week and wash our berry-island clean….
