Identify Fraud Services


(Howard) #1

What if an Identity Theft Service were to spill all it knows? Most of us were likely compromised in the recent Marriott spill. Identify protection services are a double-edged sword. While they may protect you they also represent an existential privacy rupture. For example, Kroll (Marriott’s free identity provider) offers to track your bank accounts, passports, health id’s, and more. Should their security be breached and compromised even then even more valuable information is released. It certainly seems like a good idea to stay on top of and possibly get control of your identity fraud before it spins out of control – but that’s the trade-off. How do you feel about identify protection services. - Howard
