Whether or not we've had an unfortunate personal experience or just know family, friends or coworkers who have, it's a real threat in this digital age. It just seems to be an all too common occurrence for hackers to obtain your credit card information online, and suddenly you find out that you're purchasing electronics, clothing and more in states that you've never visited.
While there are steps that we can follow to decrease the likelihood of being a victim (never giving out your social security number, shredding documents that include personal information, keeping your computer's security up to date, etc), it is also possible to take things one step further and truly protect yourself with identity theft prevention services from LifeLock.
Even if you take great care to protect your personal information, it is still out there (at work, school, when shopping, etc), so it isn't that big of a surprise to hear that identity theft is the number one consumer complaint. Fortunately, once you enroll in LifeLock identity theft protection, their proactive suite of member services immediately begins monitoring for threats against your identity.
By adding an additional layer of protection against identity theft and credit fraud, LifeLock does more than simply alerting you whenever they detect your personal information being used. In fact, if you become a victim of identity theft while you are a LifeLock member, they will spend up to $1 million to hire experts, lawyers, investigators, consultants and whoever else it takes to help your recovery.
I don't know about you, but it's a load off of my mind to know that there are knowledgeable folks out there not only doing work to keep my identity safe, but they will also go through the headache and hassle to fix any problems that might occur!
LifeLock offers three levels of protection — LifeLock, LifeLock Ultimate and LifeLock Credit Score Manager — and makes it easy to compare and choose which plan is right for you.
For me, the LifeLock plan includes all of the features necessary so that I can rest assured that it is safeguarding my personal information from the risk of misuse:
- Alerts of potential threats–both credit and noncredit related
- Online access to a personalized dashboard showing current threats
- Relentless monitoring for exposure of your personal information
- Member services with local phone support—24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
- Stolen or lost wallet remediation services to help cancel and replace credit and debit cards
- Comprehensive recovery services if you become a victim of identity theft on our watch.
Being able to contact support at any time of day is convenient for my busy schedule and staying up to date with email notifications and access to my personalized dashboard is exactly the support that works for me.
Ideal for people looking to safeguard their personal information from the risk of misuse, LifeLock identity theft protection is a proactive defense system that monitors your identity and alerts you of potential dangers. If you're ready to take the important step in keeping your identity safe and secure, these are the experts (and they really are relentless!) that will do just that.
