Think about your online accounts.

You probably have multiple accounts for social media, financial institutions, work, utility businesses, and more. Now consider how often you sign into these various accounts each day. Probably more than once, right? Most of your life’s information is stored in these accounts, whether via login credentials, your SSN, your date of birth or other sensitive items.

Don't Risk Your Personal Accounts  

What would happen if an online intruder – a hacker – gained access to these accounts? Your identity could be stolen, or your personal information could be put up for sale. You would instantly lose your hard-earned online privacy. However, as an IDShield Member, your online accounts are closely guarded by our Username/Password Monitoring, so that identity thieves don’t get the best of you!
