TrustedID launched IDSafe, a free consumer credit and identity theft protection service to provide core coverage at absolutely no cost.
IDSafe provides consumers a free credit score updated monthly and Facebook social networking privacy risk monitoring. In addition, continuous monitoring of known online black market venues where identity thieves buy and sell consumers’ personal information is included to prevent IDSafe users’ vital data from falling into the wrong hands.
Along with a new credit score update every month, IDSafe users receive a free annual credit report from each of the three national credit bureaus, as well as TrustedID’s Lost Wallet Protection service that helps consumers quickly take control of the situation should their wallet or purse becomes lost or stolen.
TrustedID’s expert Identity Restoration Assistance is included free of charge to help consumers in the event their identity is compromised. A unique Fraud Alert Reminder service even enables IDSafe users to place and monitor ongoing fraud alerts on their credit record to reduce the likelihood of becoming prey to the most dangerous forms of identity theft.
IDSafe users also have full access to the IDSafe Marketplace, an offering that brings together free services from TrustedID partners whose offerings complement TrustedID’s protection.
The IDSafe Marketplace currently includes 5GB of online data storage from SugarSync, online privacy scan and personal data removal services from ReputationDefender, parental control tools from SafetyWeb, PC scanning services from IdentityFinder and Cloud-based anti-malware protection from by Immunet.
“With no subscription time limit or purchase requirement, IDSafe provides the absolute best value for core protections that everyone should have in place,” Mitic said. “And, should you ever decide to deepen or broaden your protection, IDSafe customers will have easy access to an array of additional protections from TrustedID’s award-winning premium services to add comprehensive credit monitoring, online credit reports and more.”
