You might think that kids and teens don't need to worry about identity theft but that's not the case. It turns out that ID thieves love kids because most have a clean credit record. Often teens won't find out that their identity has been stolen until they apply for their first credit card or a college loan.
To mark Safer Internet Day, we are launching a pledge and a call to action. I realize there are many pledges out there, mostly sounding like the 11th Commandment: "I will not..." or "I shall not..." Instead, our Pledge for Good is positive, affirming and aspirational. And simple: "I will use my power for good."
