Theft Identity and How to Protect Yourself

The advent of the internet brought with it unprecedented commerce, information sharing, and the potential for criminals to exploit this newfound connectivity. Mobile banking, online shopping, and social media all provide avenues for cyber-criminals to steal your sensitive information. However, there are ways for you to help protect yourself from identity theft.

Monitor Your Credit

Credit monitoring can be a great way to uncover fraudulent activity that is taking place in your credit files. Americans are entitled to a free credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus each year. Use these reports to make sure that there are no suspicious transactions occurring. For those wishing to monitor on a more frequent basis, Identity Guard® offers three bureau credit monitoring and credit score* updates that can help you identify fraud before damages become any larger.

Protect Using Software

Cyber-criminals may have a deeper understanding of technology and programming than you do. Identity Guard offers a suite of software tools designed to help you secure your personal information. Our anti-virus, password protection, and keystroke encryption solutions can help to keep your information out of the hands of criminals.
