I have been a LifeLock member for over a year now and I love their service. I’ve had friends and co-workers ask me what I think of the service. I currently have the LifeLock Ultimate Service which includes credit monitoring and many other great features. While I admit this is a useful tool and a great step in the right direction, credit monitoring is not the solution to identity theft.
More than just a credit and identity theft monitoring service, LifeLock dives deep to discover the schemes today’s thieves are using to steal personal information, from old-school collection techniques to sophisticated technologies. We continuously monitor vulnerable information for threats, alert you when we determine a risk, and work to help educate law enforcement to combat this growing trend.
During my time with LifeLock, I have received many emails. I receive an email when anything is reported about my credit, when I open new credit when sex offenders register in my neighborhood, when my information may be compromised, when my passwords may have been sold, and more.
LifeLock is much more than a credit monitoring service it is an identity theft monitoring system. Remember the huge “Target” debacle where credit cards were compromised everywhere? I was thankful that during this time I had LifeLock to alert me of any unusual activity regarding my credit, my finances, and my information in general.
A major software company had passwords stolen and less than a week later I received a notice that my information was sold on the black market. I immediately changed all my passwords to help prevent someone from accessing important information and stealing my identity.
