The Dangers of Identity Theft

Identity theft can happen to anyone at any time. Over the years, millions of victims have been left devastated not only in their finances but also in their personal lives. Most people are not overly concerned about the dangers of identity theft until it happens to them. 

Canadians, in particular, regularly use mobile devices in almost all of their financial transactions, exposing them to the perils of identity fraud. Here are some of the negative effects of identity theft:

  • Identity thieves can accumulate thousands of dollars of debt in your name
  • Detrimental on your credit background and problems with financial institutions
  • Negatively impact your loan and mortgage application, even your employment
  • Possible loss of healthcare benefits, medical treatments, and prescriptions
  • The burden of proof is upon you to prove that you are a victim of ID theft

This service is a significant game changer in preventing identity theft and other cybercrimes. Some of the features of NortonLifeLockTM that protect your important and private data against identity theft are:

  • Norton 360 Device Security
  • A Secured VPN

Norton 360 Device Security

A security feature that recognizes the early stages of possible attacks, Norton 360 Device Security provides a solution to block attacks before they can access your device. This security feature offers several layers of protection to shield your mobile device against hackers and their malicious intents. This is available for personal, TELUS EPP and business applications. 

A Secured VPN

Norton provides users with a secure Virtual Private Network to anonymously surf the web without having to worry about leaving their private data online. A VPN keeps vital information like credit card details, passwords, and other sensitive data by securing it with bank-grade encryption.

Dark Web Warnings

The dark web consists of hidden internet pages that require special software for access. All activities on the dark web are kept hidden by the overlay of networks making illegal activities covert and untraceable. 

Because of its anonymity, the dark web is a popular hangout for cybercriminals and black hat hackers to violate confidentiality and steal information from various individuals and sell it on the deep web. 

NortonLifeLockTM has a dark web monitoring feature that sends you alerts if your private and personal information is found on the dark web. You will also be given professional advice on what to do to protect your information in case of a data breach.

Credit Monitoring Notifications

A notification will be sent right away for any changes to your credit and financial file. There will be an alert for any unauthorized changes so you can act right away if it’s not coming from you. These changes include:

  • Changing personal details like name, address, and phone number
  • New accounts with the same name as yours
  • Credit inquiry reports
  • Any unusual account activity

Credit Score Reports

Credit reports have information about your credit activity and credit situation, as well as your credit history. You can run a credit report to ensure that there are no unauthorized access and changes on your credit history.

Reimbursement Coverage 

Verified identity theft-related spending will be reimbursed depending on the coverage of the chosen plan. 

Identity Theft Management

In the case of identity theft, a specialized Identity Restoration Specialist is deployed to your specific situation to ensure that help is available until a resolution is reached. TELUS Online Security with Custom Cellular will assist you every step of the way to help you recover your identity. 


Protecting your online presence is becoming more important than ever. With all types of risks and threats lurking on the web, protecting your sensitive data should be a priority. Make the most of TELUS online security and navigate the online world with better peace of mind.
