The Dangers of Identity Theft

The reality is that identity theft can have devastating and lasting effects on your credit and financial standing. The risk of identity fraud is now higher than ever with so many people regularly performing frequent online transactions.
Some of the harmful effects of identity theft include:
- ID thieves can accrue thousands of dollars of debt in your name
- Severe damage to your credit history
- Interference with loans, mortgage, employment
- Significant problems with your financial institution
- Interference with medical prescriptions and treatments

- Dark web threat notifications
- Credit Monitoring Alerts

Norton 360 Device Security
This security feature provides layers of protection to safeguard your device against cybercriminals and their malicious intents. Comprehensive global threat monitoring allows Norton 360 to recognize potential attacks in their early stages providing the means to prevent these attacks before they have a chance to reach your device.
Norton also provides users a secure Virtual Private Network to protect vital information like passwords, credit card numbers, and other financial details. A VPN allows you to browse the web anonymously, block unwanted tracking, and get bank-grade encryption for your sensitive data.
Dark Web Threat Notifications
The dark web is a covert layer of the internet that cannot be accessed through search engines. It requires specialized software for access and is very popular with cybercriminals due to the anonymity and untraceable activity. Cybercriminals often steal information from unsuspecting individuals and sell it on the dark web.
NortonLifeLock™ provides dark web monitoring to send you notifications if your personal information is found on the dark web. If this occurs you will also be given advice on how to deal with the situation and further protect your information.
Credit Monitoring Alerts
If there are any changes to your credit file you will be sent an alert so you can take quick action if the changes were not made by you. These changes include things like:
- Changing personal information like name or address
- New accounts opened under your name
- Credit report inquiries
- Unusual account activity
Credit Reports & Scores
To ensure the details of your credit history are correct, you can run credit reports to look for any unauthorized activity.
Different Identity Fraud Reimbursement plans are available depending on the amount of coverage you need. Qualified ID theft related expenses will be reimbursed up to the limit of your plan.
