Protect your identity

Protect your identity

  • Don’t carry your SIN card or birth certificate with you. Keep them in a safe place.
  • Check your credit report at least once a year to look for any credit inquires or changes you have not authorized.
  • Be suspicious of any email that asks for personal or account information.
  • Don’t overshare on social media. Scammers can use your birth date and other personal information to steal your identity.
