The Good

  • Credit Wise Program
  • Sure Swipe Tool
  • Education

Credit Wise Program

One service that Capital One offers its customers is the Credit Wise app, which allows customers to receive weekly credit score updates and see how certain financial decisions would affect their credit score.

Sure Swipe Tool

Through Capital One's mobile app, customers have the option to use the Sure Swipe tool, which allows customers to create a pattern instead of a traditional password, which could be more secure.

Education

Capital One offers several educational resources to help customers learn how to better prevent identity theft.

The Bad

  • Limited Monitoring Services
  • Few Recovery Services

Limited Monitoring Services

Capital One offers credit monitoring, but the company does not provide social media monitoring, internet scanning, or bank account monitoring.

Few Recovery Services

Capital One does not assist with pre-existing conditions and does not offer recovery assistance for medical, criminal, or tax identity theft.

The Bottom Line

Capital One provides its customers with its Credit Wise program and its Sure Swipe tool, in addition to educational resources. However, the company's monitoring and recovery services are lacking.

I have had fraud on my credit card 3 times. Capital One is extremely proactive in stopping it. They have stopped the fraud immediately and protected my identity. They have also caught potential fraud before it because real fraud no less than 6 times.

Some strange purchases were made on my card and capital one sent me a text to make sure I was the one who made them. It wasn't me so they took off the purchases and sent me a new card right away.
