There are so many ways for people to steal your identity as technology grows and changes. But are you still protecting yourself against old-fashioned ID theft?
53% of identity theft cases are actually not from a digital source. Your physical information is just as important to keep secure as your digital information. So keeping your mail secure is critical to protecting your identity.
But don't worry. We've got the top 5 things you can do to prevent mail identity theft so you don't have to stress about keeping your information secure.
