U.S. News and World Report

As the holiday season approaches, most people are preparing to enjoy the company of their loved ones. Criminals, however, are hoping to catch victims off-guard when they are preoccupied by family events and travel.

IDShield Product Director Allen Spence was recently featured in a U.S. News & World Report article about holiday-related privacy dangers.

 

“Individuals tend to not look at accounts closely (during the holidays). Instead, they may wait until after the dust settles in the new year to reconcile accounts and identify charges.”


U.S. News & World Report also recognized IDShield as a Best Identity Theft Protection Company of 2020.

The online guide prepared by the U.S. News’ 360 Reviews Team provides comprehensive product details, evaluating top identity theft protection companies based on consumer needs, costs, services and monitoring tools.

IDShield was celebrated for its unique use of in-house identity theft specialists.

 

“What differentiates IDShield from other identity theft protection services are its full-time Licensed Private Investigators, which members can contact using a mobile app. Investigators work on behalf of members to investigate possible fraud.”

 

U.S. News gave IDShield high points based on its competitive price point as well.

 

“IDShield’s 3-Bureau plans provide full identity theft protection for less money than some other providers charge.”

 

IDShield monitors customers’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII), triggering an alert when their details appear on a credit check or for sale on the dark web. Going a step further, IDShield Members can also consult with specialists on how to better manage their privacy – earning the service its place on U.S. News’ list of top identity protection companies.
