As a parent with young children, it’s hard to find the time to address the issue of identity theft protection on a daily basis. In fact, just remembering one’s own name can be difficult for parents enduring sleep deprivation. That’s why a company like LifeLock, whose mission is to provide relentless identity theft protection for its members, appealed to me.
I recently enrolled with LifeLock to try out their Ultimate Protection Service which “protects one from a wider array of threats to one’s credit, bank accounts, and identity by seeking out potential threats and helping one defend against them.” In addition, I’m happy to announce that CuteMonster.com has become a LifeLock Brand Ambassador.
In the next few months, we will be featuring timely and relevant Identity Theft Protection tips from LifeLock on CuteMonster.com as well as our Facebook page and Twitter feed. Our hope is to provide an educational resource to help families diminish their risk. As always, your comments are welcome. Some of the best ideas originate from discussions.
