For many families, school looks a lot different this year. Your child may be attending classes in person, but the rules on campus have changed. Perhaps your child is staying home but incorporating online lessons. Or you may have decided to take up homeschooling. Whatever your plan of action this year, you are probably doing whatever you can to make life simpler as your child navigates this new normal.
Besides keeping your child safe in a COVID-19 world, did you know you also need to protect them from cyberbullying and identity thieves? Children’s identities are especially attractive to identity thieves because many parents aren’t aware that this part of their child’s life is vulnerable. Names, Social Security numbers, addresses and even financial accounts are all potential areas that a thief will use to steal a child’s identity.
