Protect your identity with LifeLock

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LifeLock Facebook for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever had your identity stolen? I know all the time my friends and family have to get on Facebook or send out an e-mail apologizing for random messages sent because their accounts were hacked. How easy do you tink it would be for someone to steal your identity?

Here's some eye-opening statistics for you:

  • The average cost per person of having identities stolen is $1,513
  • 11.6 million adults were victims of identity fraud in 2011 and lost a total of $18 billion!
  • Households earning $100k+ annually have the highest risk of identity fraud with a rate of 7.4%
  • 6.6% of victims are smartphone owners
  • 6.8% of victims are social media users who click on applications
  • 8.2% of victims are social media users who have "checked in" using their smartphone GPS
  • 10.1% of victims are LinkedIn users

How hack friendly is your password?
