    Literally my life. I shred everything I get in the mail with personal information, super hesitant to give out info, use a password manager and two factor authentication wherever possible, fairly private person overall. But I got fucked by the Equifax breach anyway.

    Go figure, right?

    Fucking right? I actually always gather all the junk mail and credit card offers anything that has my personal information in it and burn it once a month. You’re not even supposed to use your social security number as a personal identifier.

    I don’t worry much about my personal info, but whenever I throw away old bank papers, prescriptions etc. I put them in the cat litter bag.

    I did this once. Not only did I separate them into recycling and trash but, waited till next week to do the same with the other half.

    Honestly at this point I just assume all my info is public and the onus should be on creditors to diligently verify the identity for new credit accounts. Why am I responsible for their screwed up system? If a credit card or whatever gets opened up in my name without my (real) approval, I should be able to sue them for it!

    It’s amazing that we have accepted the idea of “I had my identity stolen” rather than “some bank didn’t do due diligence and verify who their customer was.”

    You could have thrown it away in a single bin, inside a folder named TOP SECRET and it would have been more secure than Equifax.

    This is pretty much my situation exactly. I have a special pile for my more sensitive mail to shred. Builds up then takes me a while to get through it. Meanwhile, I’ve got five alerts from haveibeenpwned, two of which probably contain my social security number.

    I still can’t believe that a company can just lose shit via negligence like that and still exist in any capacity. They’re going to cost millions of people hours of extra work and trouble. That’s crazy to me.

    I never take these things as seriously as many people do. If they got some of my personal info like my address and my email, phone… I don’t think that would be a big deal for me.
    Can someone please explain why it should be taken seriously?

    There’s safety in numbers, I mean if your ssn was already compromised now you are safer then before. Also, now the scumbags who sell ssn’s will be out of a job as the market is flooded.

    I don’t have facebook and whatsapp.

    but my friends have me in their address books with my private email address and phone number (which I didn’t even give to google/apple/etc for a two factor auth). So they all install WhatsApp, which sends the whole address book to facebook.

    so I cannot even trust my friends anymore, because they don’t care about MY privacy…

    This is a nice, depressing, summary of how i’ve felt. I go to huge lengths to protect myself, and in the end of the day it hardly seems to matter. You can do everything right as far as security habits, then have none of it matter in an instant.

    I’ve always wondered if you could sign up for 10,000 fake names at your address, and start burning junk mail to generate power or heat for free.

    Hell, even offer it as a service, to have people sign up for stuff with your address and collect / burn their junk mail.
