To identify the best practices and services for identity protection (phone number, home address, credit score, social security).

Early Findings

Best Practices for Identity Protection (Used by Most Celebrities)

  • Getting Unlisted: One of the first things celebrities do is remove their information from local and public databases. There are a lot of steps that this involves.
  • Getting off Google Maps: Another thing that many public figures do is ask Google to erase your home's 'Street View' on Google Maps.
  • Paying in Cash: Celebrities also pay for most of their services in cash. This helps because identity thieves have a lot of incentive to defraud a celebrity, and card skimming schemes are perpetrated mostly by cashiers at department stores.
  • Identity Theft Protection Services: Public figures can also choose to pay identity theft protection companies that put in all the legwork to ensure their identities are secure.
  • Apart from the aforementioned, a lot of small steps can be taken to safeguard one's identity.
