There is no other service for identity theft as comprehensive as IDShield. I tried other services and they did not respond to my incident and kept me as inform as the private investigators for IDshield did. Also they are the only ones that will provide FULL RESTORATION with a Guarantee of $5 million not noted on the features on this website..

Bank information is already monitored by bank, and I'm not really "worried" about the money part, since the banks are still required to give me my money back. I know what is on my credit and my credit score, and it's great feature to just be reminded every few months that all is OK. Credit monitoring is NOT identity theft protection, and banks do it for free anyway. Driver license fraud, Medical fraud, Tax fraud, Criminal and Character fraud is what I am most grateful for and would never be without IDShield. To have a licensed private investigators on a touch of a button on my phone app 24/7 is priceless. And to have $5 Million service guarantee, not to be confused with "$1 Million reimbursement insurance policy" is out of this world. Thanks IDShield and Kroll for watching my back 🤗

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.
