Do you keep all the receipts and records of your pet’s visits to the veterinarian? Well, here’s why you shouldn’t. Just keep their license information and vaccination records in a safe place – and shred the rest.
Typically, any paperwork from the vet will have your name on it, your address, phone number, and of course – your pet’s name on it… And according to a Google survey of 2,000 people, pets’ names were the most common password choice. So with a simple document from a veterinary office, a hacker can piece together enough details about you to steal your identity.
If you would need a specific file you can always ask your vet for a copy.
