I recently was dumbfounded by a question whether identity theft protection services can get hacked. Me and my family we’re T-Mobile customers in the US and after the recent T-Mobile hack we got free Identity Theft Protection from McAfee for two years.
Now I was setting this up for my family and when I was entering all the information of my mother in law, she asked me, what if now I give them all my information and then they get hacked. I had no good answer. I actually think her’s was a very good question: If T-Mobile can get hacked, then why can’t McAfee get hacked too? So why put more information out there?
So I thought I ask on this forum: What answer would you give my mother-in-law why we should give our information to McAfee? Or why not?
