We spend an average of three hours a day online, involuntarily sharing all sorts of information, ranging from the IP address of our internet connection, our food and entertainment preferences to even our identity details. And there lies the risk.
Your personal identity and information are valuable assets that can be used by criminals for various fraudulent activities.
Your identity information includes your name, address, date of birth, social security number, credit card details, and other sensitive information that can be used to open fraudulent bank accounts, apply for loans, purchase goods and services, and commit other financial crimes.
Identity protection measures such as monitoring your credit report, using strong passwords, and being cautious with your personal information can help you to minimize the risk of identity theft and keep your personal information safe.
