Winston-Salem, NC -- WFMY News 2 is dedicated to helping you protect your identity.
If you couldn't make it out to either of our shred-a-thons, you still need to make sure your personal information is safe. Shredding is the safest solution and the best kind of shredder is a cross-cut shredder. They'll run you about $25.
The "Guard Your ID Stamp" is about $6. On the website, it says it masks private and confidential information, is ideal to use on junk mail, and even says its an alternative to a paper shredder.
However, the website and the stamp itself warn that it may not conceal all data.
So we wanted to put it to the 2 Test, live at the 2 Wants to Know Shred-a-Thon in Winston-Salem. Did it work? Watch the video to find out.
