Fantastic service to monitor, protect and safeguard your personal information, protect your identity and credit. ON July 7th, 2016 I was informed that a change was detected in my credit file. It stated similar to a federal inquiry had been made and or notification for extension of credit, loan or other. I had not authorized any changes or requested any loans nor extensions for credit. In fact I had done nothing differently.
Thinking this may have had to do with something with my federal student loan I checked out my credit profile and to my shock, the United States Department of Veteran Affairs had viewed my entire credit report without my authorization. (This 3 months after separation of service with them.) Further, they placed an erroneous debt onto my credit report. (I had a dispute with them due to the insurance they failed to provide for me to cover my injury, but inevitably paid their bogus debt anyway 3 months earlier so they could not smear my credit report since I had a stellar credit rating.)
They wrongfully and illegally placed a debt on my credit report. This caused my credit score to tank by 30 points. I immediately filed complaints referencing FCRA violations, complaints with the Attorney General, Office of Special Counsel, Office of Inspector General and the Veterans Administration as well. Once I filed my complaints, I had no other credit breaches with the United States Department of Veteran Affairs. Highly illegal - but hey they are the federal government so they are automatically excused from committing fraud and felonies. Still the damage they did under the umbrella of fraud and false swearing was amazing. I am so fortunate to catch this early. Thanks to this credit monitoring company, I was on their case the very same day as they conducted their breach into MY federally protected (?) credit file.
ID Guard notified me of a new credit card being taken out. I checked it out and found that some low-life used my S.S number to open a new credit card using a fake address. I immediately put a red flag on any new credit cards or applications in my name and S.S. number. I filed a police report and called the company (G.E. Credit Co) and complained but, they would not give me any information on the person who filed the application.
I was told to verify my identity over 4 years ago with this company. I had already been a customer for awhile. I did not want to send my SS card, so I sent a copy of my tax records. They called me every 2-3 months to verify my identity after that, which each time I had go through a process to identify myself. I have been doing this for over four years. It has been a huge inconvenience to me. Now they are telling me that my tax records from 2014 are not valid. They want a copy of my SS card. Supposedly this is the only way that they are able to process a portion of my credit report and provide it to me. I spoke to a manager and got no support, when I told him that I was going to take my business elsewhere, he gave no response indicating that he would really like to keep my business. Finally free of the harassment, Daniel **.
Identity Guard does a great job of keeping my data secure. It is hard nowadays to trust companies with my data and believe what they say they will do. But this company seems to do a better job compared to the others I have used. Decent price and pretty good customer service, and is helpful when questions come up. I like how affordable it is. Easy to pay each month and I know what I am getting and paying for as well. It works like they say it will in the advertisements. Makes me and my family feel much safer on a daily basis knowing they are watching over me and my family's security and well being. They are a reputable company who has a great product and service that works very well. I like being able to keep track of this at all times.
I liked this service a lot. It's a great service. It provides pretty much everything you would expect in a company like this. I liked being able to put in my card numbers and have them be monitored. It made me feel like there was always someone paying attention to my financial security. I was able to register for it through the company that I worked for. It was offered to employees for free. There was also an option to add people to your account for a discounted fee which I also took advantage of. One of my favorite features was the credit reporting. I didn't necessarily use it for identity theft purposes but I liked being able to check my credit score whenever I wanted.
My experience was good and I wanted my identity safe. Identity Guard offered paying out of my credit card. Great customer service, very helpful to have to protect my identity and I felt like my identity was safe and secure. But maybe the price could be a little less. Other than that pretty happy with the service.
I always liked knowing that if my identity was ever stolen, that I would be covered. I was younger and had no idea where to begin if something happened. However, I did receive a lot of calls about upgrading my service. Normally I would ignore calls to upsell or telemarketers, but they are suppose to call if my identity was stolen.

My parents used Identity Guard - they had heard about it from advertisements on television/internet. We all purchased after my mom's identity was stolen and after my father lost his wallet. It was easy to use and to purchase and required very little effort from my part. Seems secure, reasonable price and provided reliable information and alerts. I would recommend to my friends and family.
I belonged to Identity Guard for a short time. I did not feel safe because when I had an issue they basically had me do all the work to secure my information. I believe if I am paying for a service they need to meet my expectations. They didn't really help me when my statistics were compromised. However the customer service representatives were very nice and seemed professional.
I like Identity Guard so much. I like the way they do what need to be done and they know what they are doing right. When I need to ask a question about what is going on they are there to answer the question that need to be answered. Also, they protect what need to be protected.
We thought this was the best option based upon reviews I had read. We didn't feel like they were doing anything for us except to pester us with offers for other services. We didn't care much for the service and dropped them within thirty days for a full refund. Have yet to decide upon a replacement service but are still interested and looking. Not worth the money!
I only chose this specific service and company because they sent me something in the mail. I dislike the monthly fee to pay for the service. There are other free ways a person can monitor their credit and so many credit cards have their own identity theft program. However, it's great that by having the service you can be protected for up to a million dollars in theft protection. Overall I felt I didn't really need the protection.
