I only have had ID Shield for a week, and applied for a credit card yesterday. The monitoring sent me an alert through the App on my phone, and an alert was sent to my email. The service worked just the way they promised, and I am completely satisfied. I feel like I have the best protection and restoration service available! I am as prepared as I can be! Thank you ID Shield!

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.

I have been a member for 14 years. I receive excellent notifications on a monthly basis and timely alerts when someone runs credit on me. They have the most comprehensive restoration in the industry with quality professionals who "hold your hand" every step of the way...

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.
