How To Prevent Identity Theft.
Keep all of your personal information in a safe place and make sure to shred any papers containing your personal or medical information. Only use your social security number if you absolutely have to, always ask if you can use a different form of identification instead. Use passwords that are extremely hard to guess and never use birthdays for your passwords online. Do not respond to emails or phone calls with people asking for your personal information. Make sure you keep checking your bill and account statements if you see any charges that you do not recognize then your identity has probably been stolen.
