The Good

  • Antivirus and Anti-spyware Software
  • Black Market Monitoring
  • Restoration Support

Antivirus and Antispyware Software

5LINX offers both antivirus and antispyware software to help protect its customers from identity theft.

Black Market Monitoring

5LINX scans thousands of websites and monitors numerous chat rooms and forums to ensure that its customers' personal and financial information is not being bought or sold. The company also offers social security monitoring and change of address monitoring.

Restoration Support

5LINX offers up to $1 million in identity theft insurance, which covers expense reimbursement, lost wallet assistance, and identity restoration costs. Lost wages, travel expenses, replacement of documents, and attorney fees are all eligible for reimbursement. In addition to helping identity theft victims recover financial losses, 5LINX also appoints an expert to provide support and advice throughout the restoration process.

The Bad

  • No Limited Power of Attorney
  • Lack of Credit Monitoring

No Limited Power of Attorney

In the event of identity theft, 5LINX does not provide its customers with an attorney to represent them or help restore their identity to pre-theft status.

Lack of Credit Monitoring

5LINX does not offer credit monitoring, which is a very important service when it comes to identity theft prevention. 

The Bottom Line

5LINX is an identity protection company that provides its customers with antivirus and antispyware software, black market monitoring, and restoration support. However, the company does not offer credit monitoring or provide customers with attorneys in the event of identity theft.
