Over 13 million Americans were victims of identity theft in 2013. From online data theft to dumpster diving to a stolen wallet, there are many ways that criminals can steal your identity. It’s more important than ever to protect yourself from this growing criminal activity.
Using an identity theft protection service is the best way to minimize risk and protect your personal information from being misused. Doing this not only gives you added convenience and peace of mind, but also provides more advanced identity theft protection than you can achieve on your own.
Identity theft can take many forms, from stealing your complete profile – all of your personal information – to gathering bits of your identity and combining that information with other data to create a synthetic profile, so it’s also important to use a best-in-class identity theft protection product that monitors comprehensive activity.
-Early detection of fraud greatly reduces the financial, emotional and legal burden associated with identity theft
-People who use an identity theft monitoring product or service have more control over the safety of their family and their identity
