PrivacyGuard Review

PrivacyGuard provides access to your credit scores and reports from all credit bureaus. PrivacyGuard immediately notifies you of any changes in your credit reports. This is often a clear indication that your identity is at risk. If unusual or unauthorized access is suspected, get access to PrivacyGuard’s hotline to help you sift through all this information.

 

What does it protect?

Address  

Credit/ Debit Cards

Name

Public Records

Social Security Number

 

Services

 

Monitoring Yes         
Fraud Alerts Yes
Credit Freeze Gives assistance
Reimbursement Insurance No $1 million insurance
Resolution Gives assistance
Restoration Gives assistance

 

*** PrivacyGuard does provide assistance in cases when identity fraud is reported. However, this might already be too late since unauthorized access has already occurred. Bank accounts are the most targeted type of information and having protection against this is essential.

 

Features

 

Triple bureau credit report/ credit reports get access to your credit information
Monthly credit score tracking notifies you of any changes in your credit score
Identity fraud support service get access to fraud specialist
Identity theft insurance  reimburses costs related to personal identity restoration
Lost wallet protection provides support for replacing or cancellng your cards

 

*** PrivacyGuard does not offer child identity protection. Most of the top identity theft protection services include medical ID protection to safeguard against unauthorized use, which PrivacyGuard sadly does not offer.

 

Prices

$1 for the first 14 days and $17.99 for each succeeding month

 

*** With other identity theft protection services offering 2 weeks or even 1 month free usage, PrivacyGuard’s $1 offer is not exactly the best deal available. Its limited protection does justify the $17.99 price tag, which makes searching for another provider the more logical option.

 

Bottom Line

There is much to be desired when it comes to the features that PrivacyGuard provides. Instead of missing a few protection features here and there, its long list of “not have” makes it the least obvious choice.
