5 Reasons Parents Need IDShield

What is IDShield?

IDShield is an identity theft protection service aimed at equipping you and your family with the tools to protect yourself. Identity theft affects over 17 million U.S. citizens each year. The digital age has made it easier for criminals to get ahold of personal information like credit cards, social security numbers and bank account information. It’s important now more than ever to protect your family from identity theft.

1. Don’t dis-credit your kids.

Children are one of the easiest victims of identity theft. Criminals can get ahold of your child’s social security number through school, hospital and government forms. While government departments have laws to protect your information, many times papers pass through eyes and hands that are not always trustworthy. It’s best to avoid sharing your child’s social security cost at all cost.

How legal shield can help:

We will monitor and alert you of any suspicious activity regarding your child’s credit. Like another pair of eyes, IDShield will be there to help keep an eye on your child’s future credit.

2. Don’t let someone else have the vacation you never had

Dreaming of that big family vacation to Disney World? Criminals can take your dream away with the click of a mouse. Your credit could be compromised and someone else could be using credit cards in your name to travel the globe. Big purchases and airplane tickets are sometimes the first purchases made with stolen credit cards. You may be saving up to take the kids on a vacation, but someone else could be spending money behind your back.

Protect your credit card number.

Don’t enter your credit card number on un-protected websites and forms. Make sure the online shopping you do is credible and protected by the lock symbol on the url.

LegalShield will help protect you when or if fraudulent websites take your credit card information. On top of monitoring your credit card activity, we can provide legal support if someone steals your credit card information.
