Protecting your identity goes beyond who you give your social security number or carrying your social security card around with you.


Jack Myers at Social Security indicates your social media accounts can be detrimental to your identity being compromised. 



Your cell phone or iPad is stored with tons of personal information you may not even realize could compromise your security. Myers stresses avoiding internet threats by installing and maintaining strong anti-virus software on all your devices.  



As it relates to other aspects of our technology, Myers reminds do not click on any link sent via unsolicited e-mail or text messages.  Type in the web address yourself, and only provide information on the secure website “https”. That 'S' signifies the site is secure.
