Identity theft refers to the unauthorized use of an individual's personally identifiable information (PII), such as name, social security number, bank information, and other sensitive information that can compromise a person’s privacy, security, and financial assets.

You can protect yourself against identity theft by securing your personal information -- online and offline. Make sure to engage in best practices such as using strong passwords, protecting your devices with updated security software, monitoring your bank transactions, securing your personal documents, and minimizing the amount of information you share online. ​

For proactive protection, McAfee® can actively monitor your sensitive information and give step-by-step guidance when you need it the most.

Begin by analyzing the situation and reviewing the compromised information. Then, notify the relevant authorities, such as your bank, coverage agency, a local police station, or a national cybercrime complaint center. While the relevant authorities are helping you with the case, check and secure your financial accounts, devices, and proof of identity. ​

McAfee Total Protection Ultimate plans include identity theft coverage to cover up to $1,000,000 of qualifying losses, and hands-on restoration support to help you reclaim your identity. Identity theft coverage not available to McAfee Security for T-Mobile subscribers in the State of NY or Puerto Rico due to regulatory compliance.

The most common form of identity theft is financial identity theft, which refers to any type of theft when someone uses another individual’s information for financial gain. Some examples are New Account Fraud, Account Takeover Fraud, Business Identity Theft, and Tax-Related Identity Theft.

You must report identify theft to the FTC at https://www.identitytheft.gov/#/assistant or 1-877-438-4338. Prepare your personal identity documents such as ID cards or SSN to verify your name, utility bill/mortgage statement for address verification, along with bank or credit card statements to show where fraudulent transactions took place. The identify theft report proves to businesses that your identity has been stolen.

You can access and manage your identity protection on protection.mcafee.com.
