How do I stop Credit Karma from announcing "It's your birthday!"
Hello,
Credit Karma sent me an email titled "It's Your Birthday". Although the thought was nice, I regard that announcement as a security problem. Next to Social Security number, it is the second most critical piece of information needed for identity theft. Although the message did not include the birth year, that is relatively easy to figure out from classmates or graduation year. Anyone else see this as a potential problem and does anyone know how to get Credit Karma to stop this practice?
Thanks.
