Identity Protection in Today's World
You may be asking, "How can I protect my identity?" when there are so many cases of theft every year, and so many types of identity criminals. Some of the first steps are really simple. Keep your important personal documents such as your social security card, birth certificate and passport locked up so that they are not easily accessible to opportunistic criminals who may or may not be friends of family members.
It is also important that you know how to protect your identity on a larger scale. This might mean keeping track of your credit score and periodically ordering copies of your credit report. But, did you know, there are three major credit reporting bureaus that keep track of this information? It would take a lot of time to continually monitor those scores and review those reports.
If you are wondering how to more efficiently protect from identity theft, you are probably a good candidate for Identity Guard®. Identity Guard provides ongoing monitoring of not only your credit reports, but of your identity by looking for any certain activity of your valuable personal information. With Identity Guard, you will receive not only quarterly credit scores and reports from the three major bureaus, but ongoing alerts whenever certain activities are detected. These reports and timely alerts may help you to take action to protect your identity before the damage escalates to something that could take months of your time and hundreds of dollars to correct.
