Credit Monitoring

Eliminate ID Theft offers credit monitoring from all three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion).

The Bad

  • Lack of Recovery Services
  • Limited Insurance

Lack of Recovery Services

Eliminate ID Theft's services are lacking when it comes to recovery and restoration. It is unclear whether or not Eliminate ID Theft assists with pre-existing conditions and the company does not help with financial, medical, criminal, or tax identity recovery.

Limited Insurance

Eliminate ID Theft offers its customers up to $25,000 in identity theft insurance. While this is better than nothing, many other companies in the industry offer up to $1 million in coverage.

The Bottom Line

Eliminate ID Theft offers affordable identity protection plans and credit monitoring. However, the company's recovery services are lacking and its insurance coverage is limited.

I have EliminateIDTheft (EIDT) and have used them for a few years. The good: the price isn't bad and the monthly credit alert summaries directly to email are nice. ONE CAVEAT: If you do not get the email, for whatever reason, EIDT cannot get you a duplicate credit alert summary. I know from experience. They missed getting me one. It never came to me vial email as usual, and did not end up in my spam folder, which I diligently scan. I called them and emailed them, and after ten days (six business days), I can tell they are not going to respond to my complaint or my request that they send me a duplicate copy of my credit alert summary. There is a reason they cannot send me a duplicate summary (which you would not think should be a problem, but it is): EliminateIDTheft is a mere re-seller of product. So, when a credit alert summary problem arises (i.e., you don't get it), they have to contact someone at My Privacy Matters (MPM), whose platform they sell. It gets worse. MPM relies on TransUnion for these summaries. So, to reiterate, EIDT has to reach out to their contact at MPM, who subsequently has to reach out to his/her contact at TransUnion. With all these third parties involved, somebody can (and did, in my case) drop the ball. So, their credit alert summaries are great...as long as you get them. If you don't, forget about it. Their program isn't bad, but their customer service is, essentially, nonexistent. If good customer service is a priority for you when you have a problem, pick another company.
