        They're ok but seems to be a day or two late to notice you on any action on your credit report and the longer I have had it the less notice I get from them. I got this free with a purchase so not sure if that is why but I would not pay for this.

        As an overall company I would rate these guys 4 out of 5. It would be 5 out of 5 if the customer service would become more informed of what they are supposed to be there to help with, then they would represent the company more accurately. Other than that everything looks great. Website is a pleasure to navigate and looks clean and professional. With so many result options to choose from that I almost could not decide what one to pick.

          ProtectMyID is offered by the Auto Club as an additional benefit. Considering the price of equivalent services runs from $10-$20 a month on its own, the inclusion of this at no additional cost makes an Auto Club membership even more valuable. The service includes Dark Web, SSN, Credit Report and other monitoring and sends a monthly report at a minimum, plus alerts if there is detected activity of concern on any monitored area.

          I received a free subscription to ProtectMyId after my information was lost as the result of a data breach. I actually had to use ProtectMyId to dispute an entry on my credit report when the service notified me of an issue. The service worked well with Experian and Equifax (had to hire an attorney for Trans Union). ProtectMyId provides great services, notification and protection. If I did not have a credit monitoring service through my credit card company, I would still have ProtectMyId.

          They were very responsive when a suspected ID theft occurred... They contacted the credit firms and helped create no new credit apps... They followed up several times... They also requested a full credit report be sent to me to review for any issues... I’m very satisfied!

          If you need your identity protected this is the company. I used them for 18 months and every time I had an issue I was notified. Identity theft protection is very important and I suggest to anyone to choose this company.

          This personal ID/data security facility is a welcomed service especially these days when theft of personal data is a real concern. This is in line with The General Data Protection Regulation (GNPR).

          Your identity is so critical as if it is compromised, bad things happen. What is important is not only the monitoring of your various accounts but the way you are notified of possible issues that do.

          I received this basic service with my AAA membership. It does what it is supposed to do in monitoring my credit hits and notifies me if hits occurred.

          I get it free through my bank, so that is very satisfying. I get an email once a month telling me if there has been any activity spotted. It only covers basic, and I would have to pay for more cover.
