Identity thieves are smart. Be smarter.
In today's globally connected world, an identity thief could be in another country, another state, even right next door. The scary reality is, you aren't always in control of who has your personal information. But you can control whether or not you're protected against identity theft, a crime that claims 9 million American victims a year.1
When identity thieves strike, ProtectMyIDTM strikes back.

Surveillance AlertTM Notifications
Identity thieves won't tell you they're using your personal information. But, ProtectMyID will. We'll alert you via text or email of new activity that could be identity thieves at work. Then we'll help you stop the damage from escalating with identity theft resolution. Every day, we make your protection our top priority with three levels of advanced monitoring.
You may review your credit card statements every month for purchases you didn't make. But, every day, we check your credit report for other types of fraud that are much more dangerous. We watch for 50 leading indicators of identity theft. Each one, from a new loan to medical collections, poses a unique threat to your identity that we'll help you address.
ProtectMyID continually monitors a vast number of online sources where compromised credit and debit card numbers, Social Security numbers and other personal data is found, traded or sold, helping reduce your potential exposure to identity theft.
National Change of Address Monitoring
Your bills and monthly statements can feed criminals important account and personal information. An identity thief may steal a single piece of your mail or all of it with a fraudulent change of address request at the post office. Every day, we look for the red flags. We monitor address changes at the national and credit report levels and help you resolve any issues.
All Clear Surveillance Alerts
It's important to know when your identity might be at risk so you can react and recover. It's also nice to hear that everything's okay. If we detect that your identity is free of activity for an entire month, we'll let you know with an All Clear Surveillance Alert.
