Breaking Tech News: Wocket Smart Wallet Competition "Show Us Your Wallet", #Needawocket Reveals Social Media Identity Theft Issues
Wocket Helps Protect Against Identity Theft
SHELTON, Conn. - August 5, 2014 (Investorideas.com Newswire) NXT-ID, Inc., (OTCQB: NXTD) a biometric authentication company focused on the growing m-commerce market, notes that the current social media competition "Show us your Wallet", for its next generation smart wallet, Wocket™ reveals first-hand evidence of how social media can unintentionally play a role in identity theft.
"An exuberant contestant submitted a photo of their big fat bulky wallet, unfortunately displaying all the details of their driver's license", says Laurence Savin, a marketing consultant overseeing the contest for NXT-ID. "We obviously had to quarantine it and notified the contestant it was not best practice to publish information like this on social media."
Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, said "This issue has made headlines with people posting their credit card information on Facebook and Twitter. Social media interaction can incite behavior that may not ever be considered in the real world."
He went on to say "Your identity can be stolen from your driver's license, credit cards, debit cards and other personal information, all of which can be protected with the Wocket wallet; it's your own personal vault."
Wocket allows you to enter your personal information directly, without having to access the internet or a computer server. If your Wocket is lost or stolen all your personal information is hidden unless you are the authorized user. Your Wocket Card does not hold any identifying information after the card is swiped so if it is lost it has no value to others.
According to the Consumer Sentinel Network, U.S. Department of Justice report dated February of 2012, 10% of all Americans fell victim to some type of credit card fraud in 2011. A typical victim spends 44 hours recovering from credit card fraud/identity theft and an average of $500 repairing the damage to their credit reports
