10 tips for Protecting Kids from Identity Theft

child id theftLast week, I co-hosted a chat on Twitter with Clay Nichols from LookOut Social and CSID.  We spent an hour chatting with security experts, teachers and parents about how to protect children’s identity online. We shared how identity thieves are targeting kids by searching their social media accounts for personal information. With their information, thieves can often impersonate them for years without being detected. Everyone had lots of great tips for how to safeguard children. If you want to see them all CSID created a page on Storify for the #cyberSAFEchat tweets.

As promised, here are 10 tips from our chat.
