Did you know that children under the age of 18 are twice as likely as their parents to become victims of identity theft? Thieves prefer to steal a child’s identity because they usually have a clean credit report and it’s as easy as having access to their name or address.
So, how do we protect our kids?
- Be very selective with who has their personal information.
- Keep social media sites private and marked invitation-only.
- Make sure you know who your children are connecting with on the Internet.
