The internet can be a scary place — hackers, fraudsters and schemers are standing in the proverbial shadows, just waiting for you to drop your guard.

And every seven seconds someone does let their guard down — which, according to a 2020 report from the U.S. FTC, resulted in more than $3.3 BILLION in identity theft and fraud losses in 2020 alone.*

It’s way too easy to open yourself up to a credit-score destroying, identity-stealing criminal. And they know it.

Things as innocent as swiping your credit card at a gas station, connecting to a public WiFi or answering a Facebook quiz about your first pet and the street you grew up on could be handing these bad guys your personal information. And most of us don’t even realize it.

That’s where a digital security company called Aura comes in. It guards your money, personal info and devices against identity theft and fraud all in one place. It’s the most uncomplicated way to protect yourself online.

Safeguard Your Money, ID and Devices All at Once

Normally, if you want to protect yourself, your money and your network, you’d have to buy three products, set up three services and wade through three customer service centers to solve any problems. Talk about a mess.

But when you sign up with Aura, you get identity theft, financial fraud and device and network protection in one subscription. For just a few bucks a month, Aura’s tech will protect you from financial, credit and identity theft, plus malware, ransomware, scam sites and more.

Here’s how it works: Aura will monitor the web  —and your credit — for leaks and breaches of your personal information, which you provide to Aura, and alert you of any suspicious changes or charges. Plus, they do this four times faster than the average identity theft product. If you do experience identity theft or fraud, you’ll be assigned a US-based personal case manager to help fix it.

And for some peace of mind, you’ll also be covered with a $1 million identity theft insurance policy for eligible losses.

As for your devices, Aura stops malware from infecting your phone or computer and will even block you from scam and phishing sites that could steal your info. It works across Android, iOS and Windows.

There are three plans to choose from, ranging from a basic plan to ultimate protection.

More than one million people are protecting themselves with Aura. It takes just two minutes to sign up, and your identity, money and devices could be safer, too.
