Identity theft does not magically start once you become an adult. Children are also highly susceptible to having their personal information stolen, including Social Security numbers. Just like an adult, a child can be a victim of identity theft. This means that an identity thief can open fraudulent bank or credit accounts. In addition, this can damage your child’s credit history as a result. All of this can happen before they are even old enough to open said accounts themselves. The LifeLock Junior membership is an add on to any existing adult membership, whether it be LifeLock Standard, LifeLock Advantage, or LifeLock Ultimate Plus.
Is LifeLock Junior Membership worth it?
Identity theft of children under 18 has been increasing at a very high rate, much like identity theft in general. With the ever increasing threats of identity fraud, we believe the LifeLock Junior membership to be a worthy addition at just $5.99 per month. The piece of mind from knowing your child is protected, just like you, is hard to pass up.
The LifeLock Junior membership includes many of the same features and protections as that of an adult membership. In addition, LifeLock will apply some tools and methods specifically designed for children under 18. You can rest assured knowing that your child’s personal information and credit file will remain clean. Lastly, in the event of compromise, LifeLock offers identity restoration support, as well as coverage for lawyers and experts.
