TERRI’S TIP JUNE 2018


Why you should rip the mailing label off magazines coming into your home.

As a Professional Organizer working with paper management for certain clients, I’ve been asked by some clients to rip up, shred or cross off their name/address with a black marker. I always felt that one’s address was in the public domain so it seemed foolish. Now, I’ve learned something new. It’s specifically about the labels on magazines you subscribe to. The label might contain codes with the last four digits of your credit card. This is dangerous, obviously, if a hacker gets ahold of it. They could retrieve your credit card information, your home address, your email address, possibly your password. Read the article below and for your protection and peace of mind simply rip up/shred magazine labels before you recycle them or pass them along to friends/family/doctor’s office/health club/nursing homes or leave them on an airplane. I don’t think you need to do this for every single letter containing your home address, however, but then again — the world is changing so what do I know!

Why You Need To Rip The Mailing Label Off Magazines As Soon As They Arrive
