Identity theft is a growing crime in the United States. Who’s most at risk? That’s hard to say. Reliable statistics on identity theft targets are few. So, we’ve identified four groups that may have a higher risk of ID theft. We’ve ordered them chronologically, starting at birth and ending in old age.

Who is vulnerable to identity theft? Here’s what our list of identity theft targets looks like:

Children

Mega social media users

High-income earners

The elderly

Do you fall into one of these groups?

If so, it’s smart to take steps to help protect against identity theft. But even if you don’t fall into these categories, these tips are still applicable to everyone to help protect against ID theft.
