Child identity theft is a crime that occurs when a person uses the information of a minor in order to commit fraud. There’s a number of reasons why children’s information is attractive for thieves. Mostly because a children’s credit report is clean, which allows thieves to use it for financial purposes and the crime can go unnoticed over a long period of time until it’s too late.

The good news is there are preventative steps you can take to keep children’s sensitive information safe.
