being MVP: How to Protect Yourself from Identity Theft #LifeLockProtect

How to Protect Yourself from Identity Theft #LifeLockProtect

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


Identity Theft is real and happens more often than you think. Just a few weeks ago I received email and phone alerts that there were fraudulent charges on my credit card. Mind you that this is my main credit card that is also linked online to my bank accounts. Although I was freaking out because I use my card on a daily basis, I calmly went through the recent charges and approved/denied.    


Since I order online quite often and had just ordered a few birthday gifts through Facebook, I thought perhaps something happened through that manner. However, I am not certain since this has happened to me several times throughout my adult life. In this day and age, it is so simple for someone to gain access to your private information and disrupt your life and even cause havoc. There is a simple and effective way to protect yourself from identity theft such as the occurrence which happened to me.

  1. Identity theft is definitely something that I worry about. Especially since I use my debit card for EVERYTHING and if anything ever happened, I may not be able to have access to my money right away.

  2. We have had our share of identity theft in my family and extended family. As a result, we are pretty diligent about getting notification from credit card companies and other such methods. It's crazy how easily someone can take something away from you, even from a distance. It's not always the victims' fault for not trying to protect themselves. The breach suffered by several large retailers a few months ago was a result of companies not wanting to pay for increased security for the protection of their customers. It happens. And it sucks.
