It’s never happened to me, and many people think it can NEVER happen to them- but in this day and age with all of this technology right at the tips of our fingers- we are all in danger of identity theft. I know, crazy right? You might never know someone it’s happened to, until you ARE that person. Though you may not know of anyone who’s been affected by it, it’s important to protect yourself; your family; your life.
There are so many different kinds of identity theft, it’s hard to even think to protect yourself from them all- and that’s where LifeLock comes in.
Have you ever even heard of Vishing- where your information can be jacked from a phonecall? Or SMSishing- where a thief sends you a text message pretending to be a reputable contact in order to obtain your info? I sure hadn’t thought of it. There are a staggering numbers of those who have experienced identity fraud through smartphones alone- 8.2% from “Checking In” online, or something I actually do- using apps. 6.8% of smartphone users experienced fraud just from clicking apps. It’s frightening, really, to think about how easy it is for this to happen to anyone. Of all ages and incomes.
LifeLock can help you take the steps to protect yourself from having this happen, and help you if it does. They monitor your identity, frequently check for threats, and immediately respond to theft. They also guarantee their services and monitor your credit report. It’s protection for your entire life through one easy service using a combination of data surveillance techniques and outstanding member service; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The first thing you can do is check How hack friendly is your password? If you have 6 characters and no symbol, it only takes a professional .000224 seconds to breach your password security. Once they break in they can access your bank accounts, sensitive personal information- and possibly empty you out. That happening to my family would be detrimental.
Do you think LifeLock is necessary to identity protection? Are you protected?

My day as a parent isn't complete until I've threatened to sell at least one of my children on the black market. Twice. At least.

If you have the desire to be in charge of someone else's bedtime who listens to you even less than you listen to yourself when you say "GO TO SLEEP ALREADY!"- having kids is definitely for you.
