Identity Theft Threats and Avoidance

" Protect Personal Privacy - Avoid Identity Theft"


A breach in your personal privacy protection could
 easily lead to hackers stealing your identity. It's
happening to someone every 5 seconds.

   IdentityTheft is a serious crime. People whose identities have been stolen can spend months or years - and their hard-earned money - cleaning up the mess thieves have made of their good name and credit record. In the meantime, victims may lose job opportunities, be refused loans, education, housing or cars, or even get arrested for crimes they didn't commit.

   Daily vigilance at home, in the work place and on the internet is necessary to reduce the risks of Identity Theft. Scams and fraud face all of us everywhere and there is the potential of being spied upon both off the internet and on.
Every Family Member should  be aware of these threats and participant in your personal security protection efforts to avoid identity theft.

   When you receive e-mail, visit websites, or download music, games or software, these digital Peeping Toms can easily sneak into your personal computer.

   Always watching, spyware PESTS can reveal your deepest secrets to unscrupulous hackers, thieves, and relentless spammers

   What types of computer monitoring spy programs are
being used to collect our private information?

   There are simple ones known as keyloggers which record your keystrokes for later viewing on the same PC and then there are the totally insidious type which can record your screen as a slide show and Email the recording to someone else.  Of course, there is everything in between.

                            Why is this so dangerous?

   Anyone who may want to keep an eye on you can easily learn more about you than you would ever want them to know.  Spy software makes it easy for anybody to get your financial information, credit card numbers, and web site passwords! 

   There are ways to minimize this risk and avoid identity theft. You can lock away all of your Passwords, Images, Documents, Video and Audio into one Encrypted database for your eyes only.

   Images, Documents, Video Files, Audio Files and even all of the logins and passwords you have for both computer applications and non-computer applications such as bank account numbers, etc., can be encrypted..

   You don't need to delete images, video and other files that you don't want others to see.

   Encryption programs like
Enigma (Click for free trial) can be thought of as a private Electronic Safe that will enable you to lock away all of your private information so that only you can view it, not anyone but you or the people you allow to.

    Will encryption stop people from accessing your information?

   Yes, in most instances. Encryption simply makes it harder for people to gain access to important information, like passwords or sensitive information in a file. The first thing you should know about encryption is that the formula  used to encrypt can be simple or very complex. The complexity affects how securely what you have encrypted is protected. Encryption systems have been broken when the method of encryption is understood by hackers and is easy to break.

                      Then, why bother to encrypt your files?

   It really depends on what you store on your computer. If you do have financial data with important information like social security numbers, email addresses, account numbers and passwords, you open yourself up to losing very valuable information as long as you are connected to the Internet.

Anti-spyware technology is constantly improving. The software developers invest major resources to produce security utilities for complete system protection against the ever changing Hacker's intrusion tactics.
