"Understandably people want to show off their new prized possessions on social media after Christmas morning, but this can also have potentially dire consequences. Thinking back to John Terry who openly posted that he was on holiday and his house was empty, or Kim Kardashian who famously had her diamond ring stolen – posting on social media can warrant negative attention.

“We’d advise people to consider and re-think what it is that they are showcasing on their channels, particularly if they have open profiles. Everyone should check their current home insurance policy and ensure any new contents, especially high-valued gifts are covered."
