Do you keep your Social Security card in your wallet/purse?

Having your Social Security Number easily accessible if you ever lose your wallet dramatically increases your chance of having your identity stolen.

Do you verify that your financial statements are accurate?

Regularly checking all your financial statements for unauthorized charges helps you stay alert to any transactions that you didn't make, and can help determine a larger identity theft issue.

Do you regularly check your credit report from the three major credit bureaus?

Checking any change in your credit ranking or inquiries into your credit report will keep you educated on the state of your credit, which identity theft can dramatically affect.

Do you regularly have your incoming/outgoing mail placed in an unlocked
mailbox?

An unlocked mailbox is an open invitation for thieves to easily steal your personal information. A raised flag on your mailbox for outgoing mail is an alert for thieves that there is a potential for valuable information for them to steal.

Is your computer updated with the latest anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall protection?

The latest computer protection can help safeguard you from criminals looking to steal your information by installing keystroke tracking that can steal your passwords, as well as from individuals attempting to take control of your machine from a remote location.

When shopping online, do you always look for a secure payment portal noted by the protocol "https"?

Look for "https" on sites where you will be entering sensitive personal information or making a transaction. This ensures the site is secure. Often, phishing scams involve sending a user to an unsecured site that does not have the "https" protocol.

Do you ever use a public computer to shop online or check your financial statements?

Public computers share unsecured networks and often store your personal information in temporary files that can be accessed at a later date, so it is important not to use public computers to access any of your personal information.

Do you post personal information such as your date of birth, family members' names, place of employment or your hometown on your social media profiles?

Showing your personal information on social networks can often give a thief key information about you needed to steal your identity.
