How to Protect Your Identity against Threats + #Promo Code #LifeLocksafety

Disclosure: This is a partnered post. All opinions are my own.



One of the highlights of turning 18 while in college was being able to apply for credit cards all by myself. The booths outside of the bookstore were inviting as they were offering incentives for applying i.e. products with school logo, gift certificates, candy and more. Naive me signed up for so many without knowing the true consequences. I'm not stating that it's "bad" to apply for credit cards but to have a little knowledge before diving in and amassing more than 20 in a matter of months and end up having charges that you don't know of appear.


The LifeLock Site makes it easy for regular people like you and I to protect ourselves against identity threats. Upon enrollment, your identity will be monitored 24/7/365. You can access your personal member portal anytime you want to review alerts and notifications as well as get some tips to better protect yourself. They utilize technology that can search for misuse of your name, address, birth date and/or social security number in applications for credit and services. Let's just say that my credit score plummeted after someone starting using my credit in college and luckily I wasn't in the market to purchase anything large but boy did I learn that identity threats were real and did not discriminate.


The alerts from LifeLock can come by text, phone, email or mobile app so you can respond immediately as to whether the activity is fraudulent. They also monitor your credit score and you will be updated with any changes. LifeLock even offers a guarantee if you by chance become a victim while on their watch.They will help you through the process and even insures you for associated costs with a zero deductible. Wow what a comprehensive service!

You are probably thinking that this couldn't possibly happen to you but the 11.6 million victims last year (based on 2012 Identity Fraud Survey Report) would tell you otherwise. Take the first step and explore what LifeLock could do to give you peace of mind.

  3. We have had our debit card info stolen and it was not so fun to wake up and see some charges that weren't ours. Thankfully our bank was awesome and fixed everything for us. But LifeLock could have kept us even more protected. And I love the alert feature.
