Have you ever had your identity stolen? I can tell you from personal experience, it stinks. It can really be a big mess to overcome in so many different areas of your life.
With today’s technology, it can be both good and bad in the area of identity theft protection. LifeLock is continuing to breaking ground.
Imagine you are at the store buying groceries for your family. You go to check out only to discover there is no money left in your account. Well, a little but not what there should be. This is what happened to us about 10 years ago.
Calling the cops back then really offered no assistance. They came out and took our information, but 10 years ago there was not the identity theft protection offered today.
We did not have LifeLock.
Today things have advanced so that we can all be proactive in the fight against fraud.
The LifeLock Site continuously monitors both your credit and personal information from identity theft as well as fraud 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Not only do they watch at a personal level, but they also scour known criminal websites.
LifeLock knows that once a thief gets a hold of your information, they are going to look for somewhere to sell it online.
LifeLock scans for these threats and stays ready to react to protect you from fraud.
You can get three levels of protection.
LifeLock Protection Plans:
- LifeLock Standard (proactive defense to keep your information safe)
- LifeLock Ultimate (most advanced line of defense against identity theft)
- LifeLock Junior (helps safeguard a child’s social security number and name)
And, yes, it is almost crazy to think someone would stoop so low as to steal a child’s identity, but I have heard many stories. Make sure you are all protected!
