    I am anxious to share files with my contacts via PC and especially via mobile phone,especially when surfing the Internet. When maybe I copy/paste something,click on a link,icon or making other steps,I'm afraid that unintentionally I'll share something.
    My question is: basically,especially on mobile, must you enter the app and then click on share to share a file ? Can't you share something without realizing it,right?
    Ps:but is it possible that a file sharing notification appears on my phone and that by clicking on it I automatically share ?

    If there is a share icon you have to click on it, then specify who you wish to share with and what method you wish to use. I think it would be near impossible to do without realising.

    1)So is it to share something without realizing or with one wrong move,because you have to enter in the app mandatorily,right ?
    2)when I download something on my mobile phone,is it seen also by my contacts or not ?

    1) I'm having a bit of trouble parsing that sentence, but basically you can't just touch one icon and it's shared, it's a multi-step process.

    2) No, of course not! That's like asking whether everyone in your email address book can read all of your emails, or everyone in your phone book can listen to all of your calls. Anyway you already know the answer: do you see everything every one of your contacts downloads?

    1)Yes, basically the sense is that: I wanted to know if it only takes one touch to share, and then maybe share something instantly unwittingly, or it is a multi-step process (choose the content to share > click "share">select the sharing app (ex. Whatsapp,gmail,onenote)>enter the app and confirm the sharing). Clearly if it was a one-step process would have been easier to share by mistake without noticing it.
    2) Ok, got it. Clearly can you also applies it to all the research you do on Chrome, right? Can't they know what I'm searching for on mobile phone/pc (without hacking techniques, of course) ?
    3)Connecting me to point one: so is there no danger that a notification will appear on the phone (I'm talking about the classic notifications of the various applications that appear on the display of the phone/block screen) and that clicking it will instantly share on an app, right ?

    2) Yeah, just being in your contacts book gives them no access to data or activity on your phone.

    3) I really cannot see how. I don't think I've ever seen a "share" button on a notification, and any sharing operation has to involve specifying who you would share to. I can imagine one-click buttons for, as a made-up example, retweeting something, because that's going to your Twitter feed by definition and so there's no need to ask who you are sharing it with. But I've never seen such buttons on a notification or anywhere else (actually even the "retweet" button in Twitter apparently asks you to confirm - I'm not a Twitter user so just looked this up).

    1)Yeah,ok thanks. Because also here in the forum I'm a bit anxious to share something without realizing.But also here I don't think that a one-step process of sharing exists,confirm ?
    2)Are you an Instagram user ?

    2)Also here in the forum is the sharing a multi step process ? Can't I share something by mistake clicking just one time one button without realizing?

    I can't see how. Uploading anything to share is a multi-step process (press button for type of upload, select thing to be uploaded, in some cases select how it should be displayed, then confirm you want to post). And once posted you could still use the edit button to remove things you didn't intend (regular users can't view the edit history, though staff can - there are good reasons for that).

    Private messages (aka conversations) are the same, everything is multi-step and you can edit afterwards. The only real difference there is that only you and the other person/people in the conversation can read it.

    I didn't reply to the instagram thread because I could see nothing I could add to the replies you already had. If someone created a fake account and had the sense not to connect it to any information about their real identity then I can't see how you could trace it to the real person. You wouldn't have to be very smart to make it impossible for Facebook themselves to trace it to your real identity (I've decided not to post a recipe in a public forum, but it took me longer to type than to think through and I'm a 10-finger touch typist). So unless they are a naive idiot when it comes to the web, social media and social media companies I do not think you or even Facebook (if they cared) would be able to identify the person behind a fake account.

    Ok,thanks.
    Topic about Instagram isn't that.That is about fake profiles. My topic on Instagram is about the meaning of an icon
