Information that you keep in your car can make you vulnerable to ID Theft

You may not even think of the type of information you keep in your car that would be appealing to an identity thief, but heed these tips to minimize your risk.


Automobile Security
Do not leave anything too valuable in your car. If you must, keep these things in your trunk or an area that is out of plain sight. Exposed valuables can only attract unnecessary attention to your vehicle. Your vehicle can contain as much personal information as your residence. Try not to keep things like mail and forms of identification in your car for extended periods of time. For information that will remain in the vehicle, try to conceal the items in an out-of-sight location or in the lockable glove box for a small measure of security.
