AARP - ID Theft

In 2012 alone, 16.6 million Americans—some seven percent of those age 16 and older—were victims of identity theft. According to the Online Trust Alliance, in 2013, there were 2,164 data breaches in which over 830 million records were exposed—including credit card numbers, email addresses, login credentials, social security numbers and other personal information. Clearly, there is a need for some kind of protective action for consumers.
