Criminals try to gather information about us online in order to scam us and steal our identities. In America in 2012, identity theft cost the average victim $365 and 12 hours of work to rectify. In 2013 there were 13.1 million U.S. adult victims, that’s nearly one victim every two seconds! That figure represents 5.5% of U.S. adults. This is why being savvy with our online privacy is important!
