If we can't find you we can't call you

You may think it makes a lot of sense, in these days of identity theft, to leave your home address of your CV. After all, it may stop you from being discarded just because of where you live. Except that many systems nowadays file candidates according to their postcode, and they will only call you if they think you are within reach. If you leave off all address details, especially your postcode, from a CV it might mean that you don't get considered for anything. You may not know it, but LinkedIn, Facebook and loads of other services forward you content based on your location. And many recruitment systems work on the same basis. If you want to be considered for as many jobs that are as relevant as possible, include your postcode details in your CV. I can assure you that cyber criminals have many more ways of stealing your details, rather than job applications.
