Kids Take Over!

Kids Take Over!

It’s not every day we have kids take over LifeLock.

But…we’re thrilled to have more than 50 children in our offices today, as LifeLock celebrates Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

This day is the keystone event of a public education program, connecting what children learn at school with what happens in the working world.

2016 is the 23rd year of the program, with more than 40 million young people and adults participating in some 3 million workplaces in the U.S., including our offices in Tempe, Ariz., and Mountain View, San Diego and San Francisco, Calif.

Have a look!

Stopping Sexual Violence Before it Starts

Stopping Sexual Violence Before it Starts

While blue jeans are de rigueur at LifeLock, I typically save my denim for Friday. But tomorrow, Wednesday, you’ll find me wearing my favorite jeans at work—and for good reason: to raise awareness about sexual violence and how to prevent it.

OMG. An Identity Theft Victim Again?

OMG. An Identity Theft Victim Again?

If there’s an OMG moment for an identity theft victim, Priscilla W. has experienced it—many times over.

Priscilla lives in Florida, a state that sees more than its share of identity theft. She first realized she was a victim in 2013 when she attempted to file her income taxes. Someone had filed them a month earlier—in her name, using her Social Security number.

Only the start

OMG, right? And that was just the beginning.

Rental Car Roulette? Unpair Your Phone.

Rental Car Roulette? Unpair Your Phone.

While my 15-year-old son can run circles around me when it comes to video games, social media and, well, running around in circles, his old man still has him beat when it comes to tech security. After all, he tried to give a buddy the secret code to our front door keypad!

The security issue came to mind this past week while on a spring break trip with my son. To stay in touch back home, I decided to use Bluetooth to pair my mobile phone—not my son’s—with the rental car’s audio system.

LifeLock Believed Her When Her Bank Didn’t

LifeLock Believed Her When Her Bank Didn’t

Not only did the person in the bank’s grainy surveillance image look like Sloane, she was wearing a V-neck shirt, similar to the one Sloane wore in her driver’s license picture. Perhaps it’s no wonder the bank teller didn’t question the woman when she took a $1,900 cash advance on Sloane’s credit card, using a fake driver’s license.

Only when Sloane checked her monthly statement did she spot the transaction. She immediately called it to the bank’s attention, and it initially reversed the cash advance. But once its fraud department completed an investigation, they said the transaction stood—that Sloane was the woman who obtained the cash advance.
