With all of the recent purchases made during the holiday season, you can bet that identity theft is also on the rise. One of the biggest new stories recently was how a major store chain had a security breach. Thousands upon thousands were affected. I know that my dad was one of them. This means he has to monitor his credit over the next few months and watch everything closely.
One way my dad has always been super careful, and has taught me to do the same, is with shredding paper documents. Before I received the Fellowes P-12C, I would simply tear everything into the tiniest pieces. Now I can easily drop those confidential papers into the shredder and have it do the work for me. This means less possibility of identity theft if my trash happens to fall into the wrong hands somehow. You never know really. Better to be safe than sorry.
There are several reasons the Fellowes P-12C can keep you safe from identity theft, including:
- Slim profile design and innovative technologies make it a great choice for at-home and dorm room use.
- Cross-Cut blades that destroy 12 sheets of paper into approximately 309 particles per sheet, making it extremely difficult to reassemble
- SafeSense® technology which automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening
- The ability to shred credit cards, paper clips, staples and junk mail for added convenience
Knowing I am being proactive about keeping my information safe gives me peace of mind. Thanks to Fellows that became a lot easier this holiday season… and through the upcoming year as well.
