8. Sign Up For Identity Protection
Now that you have improved your credit score, one of the most important things you can do for yourself is to get identity protection. Many of your credit cards will come with fraud protection. Credit card fraud protection will only protect that specific card. However, identity protection will alert you whenever there is a new account opened, thereby protecting your identity from being used to open new accounts. That way you will be able to immediately take care of the problem any time your information is stolen. Identity theft has increased quite a bit and hackers are getting more sophisticated. So don’t take protecting your identity lightly.
