With all the massive issues of data breaches and companies playing fast and loose with our personal data it have fallen to the consumer once again to was the out for themselves. I personally have no more use for my now 3rd “free for one year” credit monitoring (eye roll) . A one year credit monitoring service has become the normal give for them screwing up but we all know that isn’t nearly enough.

So as one more check you can go to haveibeenpwned.com and check your email addresses to see if they are on some know hacked and spam lists. It won’t stop the bad guys but at least you have one more tool in the tool box for slowing them down.
