The Good

  • Monitoring Services
  • Plan Options
  • Identity Theft Insurance

Monitoring Services

Core ID offers several monitoring services, including credit monitoring from Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion; internet monitoring; and social security number monitoring. If the company detects any suspicious activity, a fraud alert will be issued to the customer.

Plan Options 

The company offers an ARX ID Recovery plan option that costs $1.99 a month and includes fully managed recovery, critical document replacement, Credit Report Track, MyCoreID portal access, member newsletter and education, and 24/7 customer service. One of Core ID's identity protection plan options include the ARX ID Essentials plan that costs $8.99 a month and includes everything from the recovery plan as well as RiskStatus, real-time RiskAlerts, $25,000 in identity theft insurance, and ID Checkpoint monitoring. The other identity protection plan, the ARX ID Complete plan, includes everything from the essentials plan as well as an upgrade to $1 million in identity theft insurance, IDTrack monitoring, CyberTrack monitoring, and HackTrack monitoring. 

Identity Theft Insurance

Core ID provides its customers with up to $1 million in identity theft insurance, meaning that in the event of identity theft, customers will be covered and reimbursed for expenses related to the theft.

The Bad

  • Limited Recovery Services
  • No Antivirus Software

Limited Recovery Services

Core ID's restoration services are limited to criminal identity recovery and lost wallet assistance. The company does not offer financial, medical, or tax identity recovery. Additionally, it is unclear whether or not Core ID offers limited power of attorney or assists with pre-existing conditions.

No Antivirus Software

Core ID does not provide its customers with antivirus software to protect their personal computers. 

The Bottom Line

Core ID offers several monitoring services and up to $1 million in identity theft insurance coverage. However, the company's recovery services are limited and no antivirus software is provided.

In a daytime gunpoint robbery my husband's wallet was stolen. The Core ID recovery expert (CRE) provided expert information and assistance including actions to close accounts, notify the IRS, monitor personal information, and so many items we would not have thought about. The feeling of extreme vulnerability was relieved with calm assurance and prompt attention to all details. We are pleased with the continued monitoring of personal information because the risk does not go away in a few months.
