DIY Pallet Furniture LifeLock #BreachWatch

A huge thank you to LifeLock®  for sponsoring this conversation on #BreachWatch. All the details and DIY opinions belong to Just 2 Sisters.

DIY Pallet Furniture

With all of the recent breaches in security at stores that we shop, we are a bit on edge. Our  DIY Pallet Furniture orders are growing daily. Right now, the garage is the main work shop and weather permitting the driveway is the  main work space. Since space is an issue there is a need for frequent trips to stores like Home Depot, Lumber Yard and Target. Time and money are big parts of the business and no on can afford to deal with an identity theft crisis.

As the need for a larger work space continues to increase, the wish list of tools and supplies needed to run a diy pallet furniture business more efficiently continues to grow. Needing more stuff, means increased shopping and spending, online and in stores. Using a credit card is our preferred way to track expenses and pay bills. We don’t want to put any of our hard work at risk, because of a security breach.

It’s time to get proactive and use protections to make sure identity theft is one less thing we have to worry about. Our time is better spent  concentrating on building DIY pallet furniture like these custom ordered twin headboards.

When news of a potential Home Depot security breach was released,  LifeLock® offered these tips:

  1. Monitor your transactions: Keep an eye on the activity on your credit and debit card accounts, looking for any charges that don’t seem to be yours.
  2. Report suspicious transactions immediately: If you see a card transaction—even a small one—that doesn’t look right, contact the card issuer immediately. The phone number is on the back of your card.
  3. Order a new debit card: If you believe your debit card number was compromised, don’t wait for fraudulent charges to start appearing on your statement. Request a new card from your bank. This way, you reduce the chances of a criminal depleting your bank account, and you avoid potential challenges in recovering your funds. Credit cards offer more protection and less risk because funds are not directly withdrawn from your bank account as they are with a debit card.
  4. Follow the story: Investigation of this crime is still under way. Watch for news and communication from Home Depot.
  5. Consider using an identity protection service: LifeLock® provides identity protection products and services you can count on. In fact, with LifeLock Advantage™ and LifeLock Ultimate Plus™, we can help you detect fraudulent activity with alerts for cash withdrawals, balance transfers and large purchases within our extensive network.

    I think it’s great that LifeLock offers so many great methods of protection, even for mobile browsing and devices. I have had my accounts hacked into a few times, digital security is important!

    Of all identity services, Lifelock has always been the one that is highly recommended more than any other company. Because they really know their stuff and are amazing to work with. Our Bank refers people to them all the time.

    My hubby practically lives at Home Depot. I am not much of a DIYer, but he’s a little more creative.

    I can’t believe how out of control identity theft has gotten. I can remember when identity theft was a rare thing. Yesterday Jimmy John’s got hacked. It’s crazy out there!

    I cringed at the same time when I saw this DIY wish list. Either Lowe’s or Home Depot got hacked, and now people are starting to loose everything. It’s really sad. Identity theft is a horrible, horrible thing.

    LifeLock is amazing! I’ve fortunately never had to actually invoke their services, but the peace of mind I get knowing that if anything goes wrong, they’ll be there for me, is easily worth the money it costs each month. There’ve been so many big data breaches lately with things like the Playstation Network and Target that having something like LifeLock is pretty much a no-brainer.
