5 #Reasons Why a #Credit Freeze Isn’t Enough to Help Protect #Against #Identity Theft

Source: National Cyber Security News

When a data breach happens, it’d be great if you could simply prevent identity theft with a credit freeze. The truth is, nothing can prevent identity theft, although there are things you can do to help protect against it.

Still, with identity thieves taking aim at everything from tax refunds to bank accounts, it’s worth asking the question: “Is a credit freeze a good idea?

It can be. But it may not be enough. Here’s why.

When your personal information is exposed in a data breach, you could face a greater chance of becoming a victim of identity theft. More of your information could be out there. And if it is, it might be for sale on the dark web for criminals to acquire.

Consider this statistic: You are 11 times more likely to be a victim of identity fraud if you are notified of a breach. That’s according to the 2017 Identity Theft Study by Javelin Strategy & Research.

No one wants their personal information stolen in a data breach. But if it happens to you, you’ll probably want to do whatever you can to help protect yourself against identity theft.

Growing Up Isn’t As Bad As It Seems

I think most adults tend to look back on the “good old days” with fondness and nostalgia. We miss the lives we used to lead, before our priorities changed. It’s easy to forget about the trials we had, when we are busy remembering how fun and careless we were. Growing up may seem completely boring at times, but it’s important to remember that it’s not always a bad thing. In fact, if you look on the positive side, growing older is an amazing gift that isn’t granted to everyone.

Your Money Problems Aren’t Quite As Bad

Sure, there are still times when money is tight and I have to reel in my spending a bit, but I rest easy knowing I am leaps and bounds from where I was in my early twenties.

When Pregnancy Isn’t As Amazing As You Hoped It Would Be

I sat waiting and waiting for the “glow” to appear when I was pregnant with my son, but acne showed up instead. I waited for my hair to grow long and strong from my prenatal vitamins, but my hair grew brittle and fell out endlessly. Cute maternity clothes were almost impossible to find, and any clothes that I did find looked like a potato sack on me. I grew to resent those that had seemingly perfect pregnancies, until I realized that it was not perfect for anyone. Some people may hide their trials better than others, but that doesn’t mean their pregnancy is a walk in the park either.

‘Halloweentown’ Isn’t Just A Classic Disney Movie — It’s A Real Place You Should Visit

Come October, everyone starts squealing about how utterly obsessed they are with Halloween. But we assure you, no one is as dedicated to the spooky holiday as the quaint town of St. Helens, Oregon

The riverside city was used as the backdrop for Disney’s “Halloweentown” ― the iconic 1998 kids flick about a young witch who, with the help of her grandmother, saves a town of ghouls, ghosts and goblins who all live together in harmony.

The people of St. Helens decided that the supernatural town didn’t have to end with the 90s. Now, the townspeople come together every October to transform St.

Khizr Khan Isn’t Finished Speaking Out Against Hate. He’s Just Getting Started.

The single greatest irony of Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric during the 2016 presidential campaign is that it galvanized the Republican nominee’s most effective critics ― and they’re not about to let up. 

Khizr Khan said he and wife Ghazala had spent 12 years as “quiet, private people” after their son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq in 2004.

But “there comes a moment where personal comforts and personal privacies have to be left behind in exchange for what you stand for,” he told USA Today during a Facebook Live interview on Monday.

No, Nest Cam isn’t secretly spying on you

Is your Nest Cam watching you when you thought it was turned off? The WiFi streaming camera has found itself at the center of a security maelstrom this week, after research questioned just what was happening when the indicator light shuts off. Turns out, as with the Internet of Things in general, it’s complicated. Speculation about Nest Cam began following the release of an ABI Researchreport earlier this week, which took issue with the camera’s power consumption when not streaming. Measuring current draw when active and when turned “off” in the Nest app, the company concluded from the figures that “it appears Nest Cam is working around the clock.” “When a device goes to power down mode, you expect the current drain to drop quite a bit,” Jim Mielke, Vice President of Teardowns at ABI Research, said of the company’s findings.
