Smartphones & Social Media are the New “Goldmines” for Identity Thieves!

I’m re-printing an article that ran inYahoo Finance today, below.  Here are my tips:

How to protect yourself? Smartphones: never do your banking or investing from your smartphone, and limit your credit card use from your smartphone to a single low-limit credit card which you can cancel if it gets stolen. Social media: limit your personal information on your pages. Your pages should never have your birthyear… or your address unless it is strictly a business address. Look over your Facebook or LinkedIn pages from the perspective of someone trying to steal identity: is there enough on there to actually steal yours? Also, put in place and keep in place privacy controls where they are available. Visit for more info. See More
