Comprehensive detection: The proactive identity surveillance capability constantly scans multiple sources for indicators of identity theft.

The product will alert users by email or text when potentially suspicious activity is detected, and lost wallet protection helps users safeguard their credit/debit card accounts by assisting customers in canceling and ordering replacement cards.
