Keeping Your Identity Safe, in a Safe

When was the last time you heard or saw any kind of Identity Theft advertising?

Chances are… very recently.

Be it from AM Radio, TV, or the Internet, these days identity theft protection ads are everywhere.

It makes sense.

After all, there is a huge need for ID Theft prevention, and there are a myriad of products that can help.An old safe in a museum

But among this bombardment of information competing for your “low monthly fee” to protect you from digital theft, it is often forgotten that sometimes
you are most vulnerable in your own back yard.

The question we’d like you to consider today is, how are you protecting the physical version of your documents and records from falling into the wrong hands?

Where in your home are your private and personal documents? Are you protecting them at all?

Passports, social security cards, insurance documents, medical records, USB drives, your laptop or iPad, and what about your children’s birth certificates?

The list of important documents goes on and on.

The answer for how to protect this sensitive information is very simple.

You should probably keep all of them in a safe.

There are three basic recommendations I would make to anyone getting started with a safe for burglar and identity protection:

  1. Make sure the safe has at least an RSC UL rating classification.
    This classification means the sage has been tested for prying and torching attacks for a period of 5 minutes.
    5 Minutes is the minimum burglary classification UL assigns.
  2. Bolt the safe down to the floor.  If you don’t do it, and the safe weighs less than 300 Lbs, it will very probably be taken out of your property. On the contrary, if you do bolt it down, it is almost impossible to steal.
  3. Place the safe somewhere as hidden as you can. If the burglars see it, they might attempt to open it (if they have the time while burglarizing your house) but if they don’t see it, they might not even look for a safe.

Lifelock Transcript and Lifelock Promotion Code – IDENTITY

Lifelock promotion code: IDENTITY
(Saves you $21 and gives you 30 days free)

About a month and a half ago, I did an Interview with Lifelock. Since that interview, a lot of people have asked me for my opinions about Lifelock. They have also wanted to know about Lifelock promotion codes and how to get a discount code for purchasing Life Lock service.
One person also asked “Why are you reviewing the Lifelock scam on a good web site like yours?”
Here’s the thing I encourage you to do. This interview is here so that you can make up your own mind about whether or not Lifelock a scam, and how much of it is promotional hype vs. actual product.
Personally, I think the service is pretty good. (I now have it myself). But I transcribed the audio Interview , because some people asked if they could read the interview with Lifelock, rather than just listen to it.

An Interview With LifeLock’s Mike Prusinski and Review of Lifelock’s Service

Side comment about the promotion code IDENTITY, since so many people have asked for information…

this link has a promotion code in it, using the code IDENTITY
saves you $21 off the cost of Lifelock, and gives you 30 days free.

I read about a service called Lifelock and how having Lifelock supposedly reduces your risk of becoming a victim of Identity Theft by half.
This sounded a little fishy to me (no pun intended), so I decided to investigate further.
After reading about Lifelock on their web site, I found out that where they focus is on trying to prevent your information, and your identity, from being valuable to anyone but you. In other words, even if your information is compromised, which (as we’ve discussed numerous times on this site) it already is, their service makes your identity virtually useless to anyone but you.
Pretty cool approach to the Identity Theft problem.
