Brandon King

I’m Brandon and I discovered the importance of robust online security at a young age, after taking my first job out of college in Shenzhen, China in 2008.

I watched as Facebook, YouTube, and eventually much of the western internet was blocked behind China’s “Great Firewall” and I scrambled to figure out what the heck a VPN was at a time when there were few options on the market.

Fast forward a few years and, after working at a Silicon Valley startup and witnessing identity theft ravage the life of a loved one firsthand, the importance of online privacy was reinforced to me.

In 2022 I took over Home Security Heroes full-time, with the mission of making this site a one-stop resource for anyone looking to protect themselves from identity theft and enhance their online security.

I don’t profess to know it all and the information on this site is NOT intended to replace good operational security practices and data hygeine. Experts like those at some of the companies mentioned on this website can help but you and you alone are ultimately responsible for taking control and protecting your family against the predators out there.

My hope is that you will come to view the site, and our YouTube channel, as a trusted resource that helps you better navigate the fast changing world of online privacy and protect you and your loved ones from identity theft.
