How Paper Shredders Protect Your Privacy
Just as technology has improved our lives in so many ways, unfortunately, technological advancements have made it easier for scammers and thieves to take advantage of us as well. Every day, we hear more stories about people having their identity stolen, losing thousands of dollars, and being the victims of generally fraudulent schemes.
Luckily, there are easy solutions to some of these problems. One of the best ways to guard against having your identity stolen and your privacy violated is to incorporate the use of a high-quality paper shredder for all documents that you no longer need.
In the following article, we will discuss how identity theft can be prevented with a paper shredder, and why you should choose Bonsaii shredders for your home and office needs.
How Do Thieves Access Our Personal Information?
When we throw something away, we hardly give it a second thought. We assume that our garbage will be picked up by waste collectors, dumped into a garbage truck and transported to a facility, never to be seen again.
However, the second we throw something away, it is vulnerable to the elements, wild animals, and scammers. Large garbage collection facilities, such as those shared by residents in an apartment complex, are usually easy for thieves to access. These people can wait for the right moment, sneak into the dumpster, and access anything they want in our garbage. This includes our bills, account statements, pay stubs, and all sorts of other identifying information.
Once thieves have enough information to identify us, it’s an easy process for them to make fake accounts online, hack into our online profiles, and generally commit fraud under our names.
How Can We Protect Our Privacy and Stop This Identity Theft from Happening?
Thankfully, there is an easy, affordable, and effective way to prevent identity theft: paper shredders. Paper shredders, such as the 8-sheet, micro-cut, high security shredder from Bonsaii, are the perfect answer to identity theft.
These machines are simple in design, but are arguably the most effective way to prevent identity theft. All one has to do is feed sensitive documents through the machine and watch as they are shredded into unrecognizable particles of paper. There is no thief or technology on earth that could recreate a readable document once it has been sent through a Bonsaii paper shredder.
