It’s when someone gets access to your identifying information for a criminal purpose, usually financial fraud. Pretty common example: Someone gets access to your credit card number or your login info, and then uses that to make unauthorized purchases.
Most people are careful about sharing their private information (SSN, bank account number, etc.). Unfortunately, data breaches happen at reputable companies way too often. ID Theft Protection is an extra layer of security when a company doesn’t protect your data the way it’s supposed to.
