Identity Theft Prevention

Friday, February 16th, 2007


Identity theft occurs when someone uses personal information such as your name, social security number, credit card number or other identifying information, without your permission to commit fraud or other crimes.

Identity theft is a serious crime. People whose identities have been stolen can spend months or even years – plus their hard earned money – cleaning up the mess thieves have made of their good name and credit record. In the meantime, victims may lose job opportunities, be refused loans, education, housing or cars, or even get arrested for crimes they didn’t commit.

You may think you are safe from identity theft because you don’t leave you credit cards lying around, but did you know that all the information a thief needs to steal your identity can most likely be found in your computer?

Right now, in your computer, there are files that hold information that could lead to the theft of your identity.

Files like cache, temporary Internet files, and browser history contain information like your name, your address, the websites you visit, and potentially even your credit card numbers. All a hacker has to do is install spyware on your PC to find all this information and send it back to him.

Spyware gets on your computer when a hacker manipulates a technology called ActiveX, which will allow him remote access on your PC. Originally, ActiveX was built to make the Internet better. Websites like your bank or favorite online merchant might use ActiveX to make their website function properly. But in the wrong hands, ActiveX can be the security loophole through which a hacker could install malicious programs on your computer. And once that software is installed, you could be in big trouble.

Having identity theft prevention software installed on your computer could be the best investment you will ever make. And if you want the best identity theft prevention software available, then you should check out Secure IE Browser Security fortified with Private IE privacy manager.
