ATLANTA, Ga. (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
It’s important for consumers to understand how to avoid common actions that may put them at risk for identity theft. Protect Your Bubble, identity theft protection brand, shares four tips to help keep an identity secure and safe.
1. Learn to keep secrets – Consumers should be diligent about keeping important and sensitive information to themselves. For example, consumers should never tell anyone their ATM password, the unlock code to their smartphone, how much money is in their account, and so on. Keep it a secret.
2. Shred Those Documents – A shredder is an investment that will help consumers keep sensitive documents from getting into the wrong hands. Old bills, credit card statements and the like have personal information on them and dumpster divers love looking for those.
3. Guard personal information and social security numbers – Never give personal information over a phone to anyone. Scammers and ‘phishers’ are always looking for this information and once they have it, it can be damaging quickly. Go in person to a bank or contact credit card companies directly before passing out any personal information.
4. Keep Whereabouts Private – Many people love to brag about their lavish and scenic vacations on social media. However, posting these types of updates only tells potential thieves that the residence is empty and a prime target for a break-in, and potentially a future identity theft. Keep quiet and enjoy the vacation; save the bragging for after returning home.
