Identity Theft Resources

College students are at a very high risk for identity theft because they have a relatively clean credit history and aren't always as aware of the numerous ways identity thieves steal personal information. Therefore, it’s not a bad idea for students to be proactive and sign up for an identity theft protection service. There are several available that monitor all your basic information for a low monthly rate, and even offer mobile tools to help you stay connected on the go. The best companies will also throw in some computer protection software as a bonus, which is especially useful for students since they’re always connected to the web. Although the right solution for each person depends on what features they value most in an identity theft protection service, the first four companies listed stand out for offering services geared toward students.
