But are parents doing enough to keep their family safe online? Identity fraud losses totaled $16.9 billion in 2019. Families with children under 18 are 128% more likely to be victims of identity fraud compared to the average American. And families pay more than twice as much out of pocket as non families as a result of identity fraud. But there are ways to help reduce the risk of this from happening to your family and still make the most of the internet. 92% of Americans say they care about online safety, but their actions show otherwise. - [Interviewer] Do you have different passwords for all your accounts? - No. - It's like a variation of the same one. - [Interviewer] Have you deleted all the social media accounts that you don't use? - No. - Yes. - [Interviewer] Do you use mobile payment apps? - I don't trust it. - Yes. - Yes, I do my best. - Most certainly not, no.

Now, when mommy or daddy log on the computer to maybe order a pizza or suppose you watch a movie together. They give the company information about them and the company remembers it. It's like leaving a footprint on that website. And that's what's called a digital footprint. Sometimes bad people follow other people's footprints, steal secret information and steal their money to buy 100 pizzas all for themselves. Is that okay? Do you think that's right? No, that's not okay.
