Identity Theft Protection Services
When we live so much of our lives online, our personal information is continually at risk. Information travels through cyberspace and it can be stolen and used for fraudulent purchases, credit card or bank account applications, tax filings and a host of many other things that can easily damage your credit or cause financial headaches for you and your family—that can be hard to recover from as well.
The statistics regarding identity theft are alarming:*
- In 2019, there were 650,572 cases of identity theft.
- With over 270,000 reports, credit card fraud was the most common type of identity theft last year and more than doubled from 2017 to 2019.
- Almost 165 million records containing personal data were exposed through data breaches in 2019.
Identity protection services monitor information and in some cases can stop a theft attempt that is in the works.
