The holiday season is undoubtedly one of the busiest shopping times of the year. As such, purchases made during this busy time of year could expose you to hackers and scammers looking to steal your identity and drain your bank account. Consider the following tips to protect your information, and wallet during this holiday season:

  • Purchase items using cash or credit cards to limit the use of your debit card.
  • It is much easier for hackers to obtain your information from online purchases. If possible, shop in-store rather than shopping online.
  • If you are doing some online shopping, be sure your computer is equipped with antivirus software and firewalls.
  • Shred any documents containing personal information, such as your social security number, driver's license number, bills, and bank statements.
  • Give yourself the gift of identity theft coverage. Florida Peninsula offers an economical endorsement which can be added to their policies providing assistance if you ever fall victim to identity theft. Speak with your agent to learn more.

 

We hope you take these tips into consideration to keep your holiday season happy, safe, and stress-free.
