Don’t Let It Be You…Top Tips To Keep Your Identity Safe
- Keep your personal information, credit cards, passwords & pin numbers in a safe place (preferably a lockable drawer or safe) & don’t share these details with people or companies you don’t know or trust. If you lose or have your passport or driving license stolen, report it immediately.
- Never throw away bills, receipts, credit or debit card slips, bank statements or even unwanted post without destroying them first, ideally with a cross cut shredder. Surprisingly over 95% of Urban Indians still throw important information without shredding it first.
- Always protect your post, especially if you live in a building where other people can easily access it. When you move house, redirect your mail from your old address to your new one for at least a year.
- Check all your statements and financial records as soon as they arrive & report any discrepancies straight away. If your regular bills or statements stop being delivered, contact the organisation who issues them immediately. In addition if you receive bills or statements for goods, service or benefits, which you have not applied for, again contact the relevant organisation immediately.
- Regularly obtain a copy of your credit report to flag up unusual activity.
- Think about the information you publish online and who you share your details with. Think before publishing phone numbers, workplace / school information, your address, date of birth or full name, and always make sure you use the privacy and security settings on social networking sites.
- Be safe online – Most of us are nowadays using the internet extensively from several devices, make sure you have the latest security patches and up-to-date anti-virus software installed.
