*** Part of ProtectMyID’s offering includes daily “All clear” alerts, which simply says that your personal information has not been compromised. While some might consider this as a simple marketing strategy it does provide a small level of assurance that everything’s safe.
*** ProtectMyID is reasonably priced at $15.95 but it still lacks some of the features that higher priced plans that its competitors offer. This could be great for bargain hunters but not for those searching for a more complete service.
An A+ rating from BBB gives an insight into how ProtectMyID is generally regarded by its customers which has been generally been positive.
Protect My ID clients can enjoy the security of working with a company that is associated with Experian. However, its identity theft services still needs some work. It does not offer some of the more salient features that some of the top identity theft services have. This might not be sufficient for those who require higher levels of security.
