Whether you earn $30,000 a year or $300,000 there are basic protections we all should have to secure ourselves and our families. Your credit score, that 3 digit number, is so vitally important that we need to take steps to manage it and protect it. A key in protecting your credit score is to protect your identity.
Facebook announced on September 28, 2018 that an attack on its computer network had exposed the personal information of nearly 50 million users. It is unclear if this breach affected the world-wide Facebook community of 2.23 billion or just the 214 million U.S. users. Assuming it was a world-wide attack you would have a 1 in 45 chance of having your identity compromised.
If you are not currently using Lifelock or another identity theft protection program you should immediately. The day after Facebook reported the breach Lifelock sent out a warning to its subscribers so they could take appropriate action.
Protection of your identity and credit is a monthly expense. But it’s nominal compared to not being protected. Protection of this kind should be looked upon as being similar to home owners, car, life and health insurance. Comparatively it costs much less but can save you just as much.
A recommendation is to get an evaluation of your current credit status. There are simple many ways and ongoing habits to adopt that can boost your score. You just have to know what those are. For a free evaluation visit www.ERACreditServices.com/contact. There you can schedule a phone appointment on a day and time convenient for you. We can also enroll you for Lifelock to protect your identity immediately.
