As you race around the stores this holiday season, be careful of identity theft pitfalls.

ProtectMyID offers smart yet simple safety tips for all holiday shoppers this season.

•Streamline your wallet. Leave anything you don’t need, such as your Social Security card (you should never carry it in your wallet), your library or wholesale club card and excess credit cards at home. Only take the credit cards you know you will use.

•When paying with a credit card, never let the clerk take the card out of your sight. The swipe should take place in clear view.

•Paying with a debit card? Use your free hand or your body to obscure the key pad from the view of others around you.

•Keep an eye on your credit report. Identity theft will show up on your credit report, often sooner rather than later.
