Identity Theft Protection

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 can be stolen and used for fraudulent purchases, credit card or bank account applications, tax filings, and a host of many other things, any of which can easily damage your credit or cause financial headaches for you and your family. Identity theft can also be very hard to recover from.

  • Over 5.7 million consumer reports were reported in 2021.
  • Over 2.8 million (49% of all reports) were fraud reports.
