Think identity theft can’t happen to you? Think again!
• How Does LifeLock Work?
LifeLock helps protect your identity with the unique combination of detecting, alerting and restoring. We monitor over a trillion data points a day using proprietary technology†, alert you through email and mobile devices* if we notice suspicious activity, and back it all up with a dedicated team of U.S. based specialists who are there to make the calls, file the paperwork, and take all the painstaking steps to help restore your identity if it ever is compromised. That’s not just how LifeLock works. It’s why it works.
• Do I really need to worry about identity theft?
Yes. Identity theft is America’s fastest growing crime.1
But what is it? Simply put, it’s when someone uses your personal information for their gain and your loss. They can take over financial accounts, file tax refunds in your name, rent or buy properties and even commit crimes in your name. There’s a new identity fraud victim every 2 seconds!2
• Why is restoring my identity so difficult?
Proving that ‘you are you’ can be time-consuming and expensive. Filing paperwork, disputes, and insurance claims can take weeks, months and even years. LifeLock’s team of specialists will work with you to help clear your name, retain lawyers and other experts if needed, and pay court fees.
• Doesn’t my bank’s credit card service have me covered?
Your bank monitors transactions on your existing account. They may not see accounts opened using your identity at another bank – or an application for a student loan, welfare check, or cellular plan in another state either.
• Can’t I just wait for identity theft before getting LifeLock® protection?
Your identity is exposed everyday: From using public Wi-Fi, giving out your Social Security number, shopping online, to opening new accounts. If your personal information is stolen, it may show up on the dark web months before you’re notified of a data breach. Plus, thieves may wait years before using your personal info.
• Isn’t your identity worth protecting with the best?
Of course it is. Identity fraud cost Americans $15 billion in 2015.2 Think about the kinds of identity theft that occur these days. Now, consider the proprietary detection technology† we use, the dedicated restoration team that will work on your behalf and how everything you own could be at stake. Aren’t you worth LifeLock?
† LifeLock does not monitor all transactions at all businesses.
* Fastest alerts require member’s current email address. Phone alerts made during normal business hours.
