IDShield Identity Theft Protection review
I've had IDShield for many years and have taken the little bit of extra time to register my membership through their online member portal and download the IDShield app from the app store to my phone. Taking a few minutes to do this has given me everything in the palm of my hand; my credit score, monitoring alerts, push button call access 24/7 live U.S. based consultants and licensed investigators, ability to list all of my personal identifiers I want monitored, ss#, drivers license, emails, ph#'s, bank accts, credit/debit cards, passport, medical id's, address, etc...takes a minute to set this up, but so worth it...called customer service to help me, they were courteous and knowledgeable, 800-654-7747. In 2014 I was hit with a series of very serious ID Theft and they caught it, assigned a licensed investigator to me and she did all the work... cleaned all 4 issues up within a few months for me, restored my records, without me having to take my personal time or time off work...now have my entire family covered under the 1 plan for under $20. Highly recommended....

It is not expensive and it is effective. Covers services you would not have though could damage your identity or credit.

LifeLock Identity Theft Protection review
I've been with them for almost three years. I lost my wallet with all my debit and credit cards, check book and cash. An agent stayed on the phone with me for four hours making all contacts to my financial institutions. Another agent arranged a warm hand-off so I could be given instructions regarding filing a claim. Each time there is a transaction on the accounts listed in my profile I receive a notification. When there is a credit inquiry I receive notification. I get the service I am paying for.

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.

IDShield Identity Theft Protection review
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.
