While I've had someone file a false tax return in my name, and had fraudulent charges on my credit card, I also use the service to double check my info every couple of months with a phone call. When added to my Legal Plan it's something I wouldn't be without in today's world.

I have had this coverage for over 5 years and have been very happy with the quarterly reports and credit scores from all 3 bureaus. The cost is a bit more than some but less than others like Lifelock and it has more features and better independent ratings.

1+ Yrs >> My experience has been Some Good Peace OF Mind. My Consultant is Pleasant to Speak With and They Always Seem to go Out of The Way to Share Great Stuff that Adds to Protecting The Entire Family. I definately Think its Worth the Small Amount I pay 4 Monthly. No Contracts.

I'm have done lots of research on different id theft protection services over the years in an attempt to decipher the differences to determine the best one for me and my family and after understanding that Kroll backs and supports this product with full Restoration if we are victims, and learning who Kroll is, it was obvious that IDShield was the best choice. Very happy with my decision.
