Identity theft has been in the news a great deal in recent years, but you may be surprised to find out that it’s not just adults who are at risk for having their identities stolen. Watch this video to learn about identity theft and children.
Children and even infants can be vulnerable to identity theft. Schools often ask for the same information that identity thieves look for, such as Social Security numbers, birthdates, and addresses. Additionally, children may use the internet and social media platforms, not understanding that posting certain information can pose a risk. Talk to your child as well as his school to make sure that his information stays safe.

Modern technology has made many aspects of life much easier. You can make purchases online with the click of a mouse and pay in stores with the swipe of a card. However, technology has also made it easier for ne’er-do-wells to gain access to your personal information and steal your identity. Identity theft is a serious crime that can have long-lasting effects on your financial life, and even potentially on your medical health. Read on to learn more about how identity theft can impact your life.
One of the most common results of identity theft is that your credit will be damaged. When a thief gets a hold of your personal information, he may be able to open credit cards, charge exorbitant amounts, and never pay them off. You will be the one who suffers if this happens to you, and you might not even know it’s happening until you try to apply for a new credit card, a mortgage, or another type of loan. Try not to carry sensitive personal information on you, and be wary of unsolicited emails or phone calls asking for your Social Security number or bank numbers.
It might sound far-fetched, but identity theft can lead to you having a criminal record—even if you’ve never had so much as a speeding ticket. An identity thief could get arrested but provide your name and information, leaving you with a criminal record. You might even have warrants for your arrest in states you’ve never visited. A criminal record can interfere with everything from finding a new apartment to getting a new job.
If someone else has access to your personal information, he can use it in many ways, including obtaining prescriptions in your name. Should you need to fill a prescription, you could run into problems if your real medication and the impostor’s medication have contraindications. Pharmacies can refuse to fill such prescriptions, which is bad news for your health.
Don’t let identity theft ruin your credit, your good name, or your health. Contact Identity Stronghold at (888) 721-9723 to find out how we can help you protect your identity with secure wallets, sleeves, and more. We are the leaders in preventing electronic pickpocketing and our mission is to inform consumers about RFID technology risks, and provide them with protective products.

You work hard all year long, and you deserve to take a vacation now that summer has arrived. While you should relax and enjoy the sunshine away from home, it’s important not to let your guard down when it comes to the security of your identity. Theft can occur no matter where you are, and can happen in-person or via electronic pickpocketing. Identity theft can pose a major problem for you that will last long beyond your summer vacation, so keep reading to learn how to keep your identity safe when you’re traveling.
Lighten Your Load
Before you head off to your vacation destination, take inventory of what you have in your wallet or purse. Some people might normally carry their Social Security cards, bank statements, medical documents, and other sensitive materials with them. If this sounds like you, remove sensitive documents and make sure you only have what you need. Not only will you have more room in your bag, but you also won’t have to worry about losing important information or having it stolen from you while you’re away from home.
Secure Your Phone
If you’re like many people, your smartphone is like an extension of your own hand—even while you’re on vacation. It’s great to be able to stay connected, but be careful with your phone. Bank apps, social networks, and other features on your phone can let potential thieves in on your personal information. Password protect your phone, and disable the auto-login features on any apps that contain sensitive information.
Protect Your Wallet
Even if you carry only the bare minimum with you when you leave your hotel, you could still be vulnerable to identity theft. Invest in an RFID-blocking wallet so that your credit card information stays safe, and only use ATMs operated by banks.
Identity Stronghold is here to help you truly relax during your summer vacation by providing you with men’s and women’s wallets that protect you from electronic pickpocketing. Call us at (888) 721-9723 to learn more about protecting yourself from identity theft at home and on vacation. At Identity Stronghold, our mission is to inform consumers about RFID technology risks, and provide them with protective products.
