Tips To Prevent Identity Theft

  • Make passwords long and strong:  Combine capital and lowercase letters with numbers and symbols for a more secure password

  • Watch out for shoulder-surfers  When entering a PIN number or a credit card number in an ATM machine, or on a computer at work, be aware of who is nearby and make sure no one is peeking over your shoulder to make a note of the keys you’re pressing.
