Rapid Increase of Identity Thiefs

Identity theft is a growing problem and people should be concerned about it. While we are unlikely to find a fail-safe way to prevent identity theft, there are various security measures that we can apply to make it hard for scammers to get hold of our sensitive information.

These include safeguarding our social security number, checking credit reports regularly for expenses that we have not ordered, shredding documents containing personal information before disposing of them, and enabling two-step verification on all our devices and accounts which notifies us when someone is trying to gain access to one’s account.
