Digital Identity Theft: What You Need To Know About It In 2022!

Excel­lent infor­ma­tive video pro­duced by CyberNews.  Dig­i­tal iden­ti­ty theft is a form of dig­i­tal fraud, where a crim­i­nal not only steals your data but also imper­son­ates you with it. Imper­son­ators then pro­ceed to use stolen Social Secu­ri­ty num­bers, pass­ports, or bank details to do what­ev­er they want. Sta­tis­tics show that active social media users are 30% more like­ly to fall prey to iden­ti­ty fraud. Those with Face­book, Snapchat and Insta­gram accounts have that num­ber at 46%. With their per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion on the sur­face, it’s easy to steal it and assume the iden­ti­ty of the vic­tim. This is why data theft tar­gets this infor­ma­tion first. Fraud­sters don’t even need that much info to go with. Any two or three out of this list will already allow them to fig­ure out most of the data about you.
