Social media is so integral to our lives, that it's hard to imagine not being able to make contact with the rest of this world without it. Social media accounts have become an integral part of our identity and how we present ourselves to the rest of the world.
Through social media, we intend to share thoughts, images, and interests with those we know. If we don't take precautions, our digital identities could be at risk. ProofID can help individuals and businesses secure their identities from cybercriminals.
It's no surprise that security on websites could be compromised due to the popularity of social media and how quickly it has gotten into our communication. When registering on these websites, we often give out a lot of personal information.
Identity fraud is when a cybercriminal manipulates information you have given at registration. These details could include your middle name, maiden name, and pet's name. You may also be vulnerable if you list your hobbies and interests in detail. You should not give out personal information like your social security number or details about your driver's license.
It is possible that a cybercriminal could be following you online and keeping track of your posts. If you post about your travel plans, you could be robbed after you leave your home.
Cybercriminals are always looking for ways to steal an individual's identity and then profit from it. Keep an eye out for cybercriminals and keep in touch with us to learn how you can protect your digital identities
