Never has it been more important to protect your financial data than now. Lenders are beginning to loosen up and make loans again thanks, in part, to a sluggish recovery of the economy. And more and more people are turning toward their computers to pay bills, apply for loans and even file their taxes. With the staggering amount of personal information becoming available online, more and more thieves and con artists are logging in and trying to steal your data.

So, how do you protect yourself?

By following some of the tips below, you can make your information more secure and yourself less vulnerable to becoming a victim to identity theft.

While employing these tips into your everyday life will go a long way in helping you to protect your sensitive information, there is no surefire way to prevent identity theft. As a matter of fact, one out of every three Americans has had their information exposed via a data compromise event.
