My wife originally had Identity Guard, because about a few years ago, I had a suspicion that when she called a small retail place and ordered something over the phone and gave her credit card number, that it then got put on the dark web. And the next thing we know, she was getting charges in Europe. I also got this service and the online process was pretty simple and quick. Since I’ve had this service, I was notified once of something, from some website and the information got put on the dark web but nothing became of it. I just went and changed the password. It’s one of those places online that you shop at. You buy one thing and never go back.
Thank you for your review, M! Identity Guard prides itself on delivering fast and efficient alerts, and we're glad you could easily take action to prevent any further issues.
I signed up yesterday, and immediately starting putting all of mine and my husband’s information into the database. It is very easy to do, and I like it better than the last company I have since we can both can use the same company. Here is my issue. I put my cell on “Do Not Disturb” during the night. When I woke up, I had several messages from AMEX. Since Identity Guard charged my AMEX card during the night, it set off a chain of events. The billing for Identity Guard comes across as “Intersections” on the credit card, so AMEX immediately froze my account. Since I had placed other orders on Amazon yesterday, it denied all of those purchases. I am a little concerned that Identity Guard when billed is called Intersections. It makes me nervous that this is actually legit.
Hi Ann-Marie, we're glad to hear that enrollment was quick and easy! Identity Guard's parent company was previously named Intersections Inc, which is why that name came through on your billing statement. Our parent company has since re-branded to the name Aura.

I am concerned about my 2 daughters' overall web protection and their footprint on the web, my identity protection and people running my credit, and the dark web so I signed up with Identity Guard. I got it direct and I love it. The app is easy to use. Identity Guard gives me a little peace of mind because I have seen it where I have applied for a car loan and the minute it said the loan is applied for, I saw on my phone who they went to. I know my identity is being checked on all the time.
We <3 this review! Thank you, John - we're glad we can help provide peace of mind for you and your family.

I had Identity Guard a long time ago back in the late 90's and I stopped using it, and then things started to come up with credit checks so I got it again. I just signed back in through the computer, and the process was great. Their service has been good for me.
Thank you for your longstanding membership, Armando! We're happy to have the chance to help protect your identity.
With the increase in identity theft I decided to seek the help of Identity Guard. I was gonna try to go with the other one, LifeLock, but for some reason, I put all my information and they acted like I was not me, and it was a bunch of trouble. I've had Identity Guard now for a couple of years. I get notifications with stuff that happens. I check it and usually it’s just me doing it, so I'm good. I get a report every month, so that’s good.
I am using a web based version as opposed to an app. Overall, comparing to other services, it is about the same as any other service. I got notifications periodically, but some of them were not useful because they were repeats of older messages. I had had my identity stolen several times and it's a hassle, but it's less of a hassle with credit monitoring because most allow you to lock your credit report. It has stopped a couple of scammers. I got it as a result of Targets credit card debacle, but if I had to pay for it, I might have to think about it.
Hi Todd, thank you for your feedback! We're happy to have the chance to help keep your information secure and to lessen the stress of recovering from identity theft.
Product comes at good price. Easy to install. Easy to use. I use the advanced options and have no issues with doing so. Also get extra options from Costco, so an extra benefit for me. Love the product. Would recommend it to others, rather novice or experienced with such programs.

I feel a little bit safer. I was one of the many people whose information was part of the whole event that took place on the day of the Equifax breach. I ended up signing up with Identity Guard for that purpose, just to keep an eye on things. I wanted something mostly just for alerts.
This company was charging me for a plan I did not sign up for. It took several months to find out that I allegedly signed up via a yellow postcard. However the postcard I received said I had won a prize and only needed to pay a small shipping fee. It took me 3 times calling and a consumer review to get them to refund my money. The crazy part was I have fraud freezes on all three credit bureaus.
I’ve had Identity Guard for probably 15 years or so. I've never had to use their ”extra services” like the insurance so I can't tell you about that. And I've been reasonably happy with their service, although I found that they do not help out with credit disputes which I think they should... But otherwise it is a great service! Very detailed.
Hi Laura, thank you for being such a longstanding member with Identity Guard! We're glad that you've been satisfied with our service and will deliver your feedback regarding credit disputes to the appropriate team to consider as a feature for the future.
I have the premier plan and everything is going pretty good, so I appreciate them.
Thank you for your review, Kimberly! We appreciate the chance to help keep your information secure.
I am a member of Identity Guard for the last 7 years. I stayed out of country for couple of years and the support for international customers (essentially when you need to track and monitor the account more closely) is way below expectations. Problems faced:
2. All my old US cards expired and trying to update my billing with international card does not work. Answer from customer service, "Sorry. We do not support international billing. You need a US card registered to your home address for it to work." Bummer.
So I would not recommend this for people who travel internationally often.
Hi Bharathan, thank you for the very valid feedback. Due to the sensitive nature of the information we handle, Identity Guard must comply with a number of security restrictions. One of these restrictions disallows us from opening our user dashboard to website visitors from outside of the United States.
We agree that this isn’t the ideal experience for Identity Guard users who live outside of the United States and apologize for the inconvenience that it’s caused you. We’re always looking to improve our customer experience and have provided your comments to the appropriate team members. Thank you for taking the time to share this with us.
