    Ok, I'll admit it. I have been a lifelock member for two years. Now the question is, do I stay with them?

    I always kinda had a feeling there was something not quite right with LifeLock.

    Not with the examples that the FTC provided in regards to securing customer accounts. No protective measures guarding their own systems and no updating critical software? What they basically did was the equivalent of you leaving your own data lying about unprotected on your own system. You've been paying them to do what you could have done for free.

    A change in practices or not, their failure to practice even the most basic security shows they can't be trusted, imho. Protecting your data starts at home with you. Never ever leave all the work for an outside party.

    LOL. Thanks for the article link, very amusing (at least when you've not been paying them for such snake-oil services). :D
