Suspicious phone call regarding a non-existent bank account. The woman wanted me to confirm my social and became irate when I refused and threatened me with a lawsuit. LifeLock explained what they could or could not do and gave me some helpful suggestions. I feel very comfortable that LifeLock has my back when my financial security is at stake. Thank you, LifeLock!
When I called to report that I had lost my purse the man I spoke to was very understanding and helpful. Fortunately I found my purse before I had wasted too much of his time. Needless to say I was relieved and happy.
LifeLock has been a great asset to me, they have caught fraud attempts on my credit through the years and it is even more important today to have their service. I feel it is worth whatever the cost to keep your credit protected. I would recommend this service to anyone. Thank you LIFELOCK.
LifeLock is a life saver! They are so attentive and don't miss a thing! I am so grateful for their services and their customer service is second to none.
Customer service is excellent. Service is okay I guess.

Got LL after a breach in credit. A few months went by and another breach occurred. Instructed to contact the Bureaus myself by LL CSR. Glorified text message service. Free apps available you can do the same thing with. What am I really paying for?
If you didn't have LifeLock you need to get it. Someone got my personal information and applied for a credit card using my good credit. I got an alert from the good people at LifeLock. I informed them I didn't make an application for a credit card. I spoke to a representative from LifeLock and in less than 24 hours they and resolved the issue and helped me contact the credit bureau to put an alert on my information going forward. I can't imagine what could have happened to my good credit had LifeLock not been there helping protect what I have worked so hard to have. In today's age of information being so readily available, you need someone in the shadows watching out for you. Thanks so much LifeLock!!!
My questions or concerns have been addressed in a very satisfactory manner and would have no problem at all recommending LifeLock to my family or friends!
I like program and everyone was good. I just requested that your company send me information about the program and version. Thank you.

You wanted me to change my username and password. You gave me a username. You never gave me a chance to give my password (blank page) so I cannot get onto your website. You never contact me and now I can't get on your website!
Alert! Attempt to open a Credit Card in my name. Very astute. On top of it.
Hello I can certainly understand your concerns. When you enroll in a plan that includes Public Records monitoring, you will receive Court Records reports. These reports are pulled from various sources to help you protect yourself from being associated with criminal arrest and conviction records that may have resulted from others using your personally identifiable information for criminal purposes. The initial baseline report will give you an indication of what is currently listed in your record. This may include past infractions that have already been dismissed. If the records are valid for you, no further action is needed. We will notify you if any change occurs to this report in the future.
Please note that the Court Records reports will search records based on first/last name and date of birth matches. This may on occasion cause an alert to be received which does not necessarily indicate that identity theft occurred. If there is a middle name or initial listed that does not match yours this is not indicative of identity theft and the alert can be disregarded.
If all of the information (including the middle name or middle initial) matches yours, please contact the court listed on the report to confirm that this record does not pertain to your social security number and that no identity theft has occurred. Please note that the court records may also include items such as driving infractions. We apologize for any confusion this alert may have caused.Thank you.

Court Record Details, Alert Date 08/09/2016 08:43 AM".
Eventually, after a very rude female phone representative, I got to a "Supervisor". It turns out that the "Alert Date" is just today's date and that the court record date was about 20 years ago. It took some time for Lifelock to explain that there must have been some change to the court record in the last two days and that was what triggered the worrying email message.
I had already checked the court records after I received the email and before I got through to Lifelock on the telephone. I could find no such change. The supervisor put me on hold again, after talking over me loudly several times. She came back and said it was because the courts were updating old records to "digital" format. This was a recorded conversation. Both sides of telephone conversations can be recorded.
I suggested that could be a possible reason, but unlikely. She insisted that this was the ONLY reason. Lifelock, she claimed. were 100% certain that no other reason existed for sending out the email suggesting my identity had been stolen. This phone call was recorded. I believe that I was not told the truth and that emails such as the one I received are sent by Lifelock to customers shortly before their annual contract expires. The emails have the intent of convincing customers that they are receiving a vigilant service. This is deceptive practice. It causes worry, wastes time and causes much aggravation with discourteous telephone support. I cancelled both my and my wife's accounts. My account was costing $350/yr.
LifeLock started immediately working on our behalf. I really appreciate the immediate alerts and working to solve our problem. Justin was very helpful and kept me informed about our conference call.

In January, it was my intent to add my husband to my membership and upgrade to the better plan. It appears that he has his own account with the updated plan and I have a separate account with the basic plan. One is over $300 the other over $200. This is not what my intentions were. One account for my family (husband and myself) with the premium plan. Thank you.

I signed up at my son's request. Unfortunately, I find this to be a waste of my time. PLEASE delete me!!
LifeLock has given me a peace of mind I've not had for years. For many years I experienced various forms of personal identity compromises. Breaches that were most impactful relative to my credit rating. LifeLock has assisted me with strengthening my credit standing due to your monitoring, reporting and informing processes. I thank LifeLock for your consistent professionalism, effectiveness and personal attention to the needs to your customers. I'm especially grateful for the personal security you've provided me and once again, for my peace of mind!
The lady who spoke with me was very understanding. She helped me with a new Password. She was emphatic to my inability to address Windows 10!
This just happened Aug 2nd 2016. You alerted me right away and I was able to stop this fraud. I put a lock on all my credit. Thanks again.
Due to someone using my correct SSA# for a credit Card Application at MACY's I was notified of what appeared to be a fraudulent attempt since the action was not taken by me. The quick response by LifeLock, I believe the issue is resolved. I still must comply with Macy's request to send a FAX letter to them to facilitate complete resolution of the matter. LifeLock's policies seem very reasonable and the agents very helpful!
Yahoo was hacked, issued new credit cards.
LifeLock is truly amazing! Worth every penny!!! They just prevented 4 different fraud applications for services and credit cards. My LifeLock representative was wonderful and she called the different vendors and cancelled all.
It was handled very professionally to a resolution.
You may cancel Lifelock at anytime and a prorated refund for the unused portion of your July monthly billing was issued on July 27, 2016 back to the card the was originally charged. Please allow 5-7 business days for this to reflect in your account. Please accept our sincere apology for any miscommunication and lack of customer service you received.

I purchased LifeLock after my wallet was stolen with my personal information. After about 2 months my husband and I purchased a vehicle in which my credit was pulled and a new loan was established. LifeLock never notified me of the inquiry. I was told that they only notify if the financial institutions is in network. When I ask which institutions were in network, he said he couldn't tell me because I could be a thief. Needless to say I canceled. And am upset that I was refused refund and customer service just speaks over customers and hangs up.
Detected someone checking on my credit report while applying for a equity loan for our account. I feel better that someone is looking out for my credit cards, bank accounts, and loans. I would recommend LifeLock to all my friends and neighbors by telling them of my experiences with LifeLock. Thank you.
Excellent and intuitive handling of personal identity related issues. I signed up after my wallet was stolen and there was an attempt to take my identity from me. Lifelock proved very helpful in alerting me almost daily on activity across financial and personal accounts. Highly recommended.

LifeLock is supposed to monitor to detect new accounts that are opened in my name to prevent identity theft. I moved, opened new credit accounts to purchase furniture and appliances for my new home, thousands of dollars. LifeLock missed all of these accounts. Thank goodness I had a backup credit/identity monitoring service which DID detect the new account activity to verify with me that I was the one who opened them. I found my subscription in LifeLock to be a complete and utter waste of money.

The enrollment procedure was clumsy and if all my other interactions with LifeLock are as bad, I would not expect to renew.
Resolution response: July 13, 2016
I was contacted by Lifelock today and everything was resolved. Somehow my e-mail was wrong and I did not receive any acknowledgment from Lifelock. The person I spoke to was very polite and courteous. I was amazed how fast these people responded to my problem. Says a lot for their credit monitoring!
Thank you for your feedback and taking time to speak with me today. You are correct that you did receive 30 days free before the billing occurred. I resent your Welcome Letter via email to the corrected email on file. If you have any further questions or need assistance please feel free to contact our Member Services at 1-800-Lifelock (543-3562) they are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.Sincerely,

I took advantage of LifeLock protection back in may of this year. It stated 30 days free protection. Well I put the payment on my Discover card. The services were charged to me. I never received any acknowledgement that I was covered - nothing! I don't know to this date what the processes and the coverage is, they never acknowledged they received my payment. The only way I found out was from my discover card statement. I have made some high dollar purchases lately and "LifeLock" Has not notified me. I wonder about the legitimacy of so called LifeLock!!
