How to avoid identity theft
Limit your use of public Wi-Fi as much as possible
While these networks are incredibly convenient, very often they are unsecure. This means that any information you input while connected to the hotspot could be viewed by someone else. For this reason, it is so important to never access your financial account or any other sites that require a password when using public Wi-Fi.
Use credit cards over debit cards
Depending on where you are traveling, some merchants still practice questionable transaction processes – making credit card or cash a safer method of payment. It almost always recommended to use the credit option of your card versus the debit option. If your card numbers ever did get into the wrong hands, most credit card companies will quickly reverse or cover fraudulent charges, while recovering funds from your drained bank account can be a bit more complicated.
Be cautious when using ATMs
Inspect the machine carefully before inserting your card. Fraudsters can attach card skimmers to the slot that capture your information when you insert it; very often, these look like they are part of the machine. Also, always shield the keypad when entering your PIN – scammers can also set up hidden video recorders. The safest ATMs to use are attached to banks in a well-lit areas.
