Identity Protection: Best Practices & Services
To identify the best practices and services for identity protection (phone number, home address, credit score, social security).
- 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.
