Safeguarding Your Financial Information and Identity

Protect your iPod

Over 20 million iPod Touches have been sold. That's great news for Apple… but could also be great news for identity thieves. If you use your iPod to store personal information, make purchases, a lost or stolen iPod could be used by an identity thief to access your funds or make fraudulent charges. First, password-protect the iPod itself. Then, use different passwords for any apps you use to store personal information. Use strong passwords that include characters and numbers, capital letters, and symbols. If you lose your iPod, immediately contact banks, credit card companies, and other institutions to put holds on your account. Also access your iTunes account from a web browser and de-activate mobile access to your iPod. Convenience is great – just make sure your convenience doesn't come at a cost.
