No matter how careful you are, everyone is vulnerable to identity theft and in an increasing technological world, it’s hard to be 100% protected. A member of our personal family has had their identity stolen, so we have a closer understanding of the destruction and years of recovery that it can cause.
What is identity theft and how does it happen?
Identity theft can take many forms including, but not limited to: cloning credit/debit cards, opening unauthorized lines of credit, using your credentials to access to your personal accounts, and actually impersonating your physical appearance for purposes of pretending to be you.
There are numerous ways that criminals can obtain enough information about you to steal your identity. The most common way is through your internet activity. In our modern age, almost everyone uses the internet and has an online presence. Smart phones can also contain a large amount of personal data. Most people use the same password for all of their accounts, making it easier for thieves to get your information.
At Imagine Insurance Advisors, we keep your information secure with multiple layers of security on our computer systems and in our physical office. We care for your information with the same diligence that we do our own because we want to treat you like family.
We hope that you safeguard your personal information and take care while using the internet, but even the best of us can become victims of criminals and hackers. For that reason, we have a solution for you.
