Norton Identity Protection is e-mail offer bogus/

My first time here so forgive me if I'm doing this wrong.

I received an e-mail from Norton (allegedly) saying that Norton was giving me free Identity Protection.

Just click and follow on screen instructions. I just want to know if it's real or bogus. 

Figured that it would be wise to see if it's ligament before I give all my info away. 

For one thing the form wants my ss number...........

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated...

Re: Norton Identity Protection is e-mail offer bogus/

Welcome to the community!

It is good that you are careful with emails. I recommend looking at the email address that sent you the offer. Usually, it is an excellent identification if it a phishing email/scam/identity theft. Also, pay attention if the email format is the standard format that you usually get from Norton. Bogus e-mails often fail to represent providers email structure accurately. 

That being said, Norton itself does have an identity protection service that includes financial and other critical information security. There shouldn't be any issues if the email is correct. I would, however, wait for an official representative to answer this question because anything related to in-depth personal information should be only dealt with carefully and officially. Good luck!

Hello davemudge

Please be aware that this is about the new Identity Protection program and not Identity Safe which is included in your Norton program.

Thanks.
