Risks when dating documents in 2020

Do you use the short form year when dating documents?

 

The risk is that formatting the date as DD/MM/YY leaves the year able to be altered by the adding of two digits after the ‘20’ to (fraudulently) post or pre-date the document.

It would be wiser, as a standard habit to always write ‘2020’ in full when dating documents.  Doing so means the date cannot be altered or manipulated.
