LifeLock Junior Child Identity Theft Protection Review

LifeLock Junior review child identity theft protection
We have noted that LifeLock isn’t a scam, but it’s also something you really don’t need. The problem with all identity theft protection plans is they can’t actually protect your identity from being stolen. All they can do is help you resolve the damage once it has been done, so their name and what they purport to do is a bit misleading if you don’t do your research to find out exactly what you’re getting.

    It would be great if you knew what you were talking about. Lifelick’s coverage it’s inadequate, but some of your facts are off. Children are being affected in large numbers. When a thief creates new accounts in their name, someone is going to have to fix it, and it’s not as easy as you might think.

The idea that you could minimize your risk is laughable, although I do encourage avoiding freely sharing, especially your social if at all possible. Your info is in databases everywhere, the thieves probably already hacked it. Whether it’s being used yet is another question. Have you heard of warehousing of identities? The only service that makes sense is a full restoration plan, I only know of one, and it’s not Lifelock. Read up.

  5. Not if you put a credit freeze on the social security number…

    What you need is someone to actually clean up the problem once it’s happened, not someone to tell you about it.
