With summer officially in full swing, millions of families across the country are on the move, in search of fun and excitement. Unfortunately, an identity thief can turn delightful family memories into fraud nightmares with a lost wallet, hacked information from online purchases or other stolen personal information. Six Flags Inc., the world’s largest regional theme park company with 20 locations throughout North America, Mexico and Canada, is partnering with LifeLock, Inc. to help families form layers of protection against identity theft so their vacations can be enjoyed without worry.

“Six Flags has spent decades reinforcing its reputation for providing safe escapes for families, and we are honored to partner with a business that cares so deeply for the welfare of its patrons and their families, ” said Steve McGrady, LifeLock VP of Partner Sales. “By working together, we can help consumers by offering them a service they need to better protect themselves from the identity theft dangers that exist.”
