Data breaches are becoming more common. We learn about a new data breach every day. More and more, these breaches include your Social Security number. The Arnold Law Firm represents people whose information was compromised in a data breach. If you have received a data breach letter from a company that means your sensitive, personal information was compromised and may be used by identity thieves. It is important to understand how to protect yourself. One way is to monitor your credit through various agencies. But, if your Social Security number is involved, a better way is to use a more advanced identity monitoring service, such as digital security provided by Aura. The best data breach response is to not respond – but to be prepared ahead of time. We recommend taking action by purchasing digital security that monitors your Social Security number before a data breach even happens.
It is important to look for an identity monitoring service that provides adequate coverage because there are many services that provide simple coverage that will not protect you. At the minimum, you should look for a service that (1) monitors credit, (2) monitors your name and Social Security number online, (3) monitors personal information, and (4) provides insurance against fraudulent activity. Insurance is important because some identity thieves will use your information to take out loans without any intention of paying the loans back, or filing taxes in your name and keeping the refund. You might be on the hook for thousands of dollars.
Aura is a leader in digital security and identity protection. Aura provides a service that checks all four boxes we recommend above – and more! Aura offers three levels of digital security. All three levels monitor your credit, your name and Social Security number, personal information, and include a $1,000,000 insurance policy. In addition to this, the most basic level also includes anti-virus for one device and WiFi security for one device. The Basic level is $10 per month, the Total level is $20 per month, and the Ultimate level is $30 per month.
