As more and more people become dependent on technology, the chance of your finances being attacked through cyberspace is increasing tremendously. And one of the most common and devastating ways this happens is through identity theft using your credit. Someone posing as you (and with your personal information) might successfully be able to open new lines of credit in your name, which can wreak havoc on your finances. It’s also one of the easier crimes to prevent.
Remember that you’ll need to unfreeze your credit with each bureau whenever you want to open a new credit account (so allow some extra time in the application process to allow for the freeze clearance). This cost-free way of protecting your finances can give you much more peace of mind and help keep your credit cyber-secure.
