Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Delaware, EZShield is owned and operated by the Deluxe Corporation. The company offers a wide array of products designed to protect businesses, individuals, and families from financial fraud and identity theft.
EZShield offers four identity protection package options that include different levels of fraud protection and range from $4.95 to $29.80 per month. There are plans for both individuals and families.
In order to best protect its customers' identities, EZShield provides several monitoring services, including credit monitoring from all three major credit bureaus, cyber monitoring, financial account monitoring, and social security number monitoring. If any suspicious activity is detected, the company will issue a fraud alert to the customer.
In addition to identity protection services, EZShield also offers a number of restoration services, including financial and criminal identity recovery. The company also provides lost wallet assistance and the option to utilize limited power of attorney.
EZShield offers customers the choice of upgrading to receive up to $1 million in identity theft reimbursement insurance. This insurance covers all identity theft-related personal expenses including lost wages.
Unfortunately, EZShield does not provide its customers with antivirus software to protect their personal computers.
Customers who wish to obtain the $1 million identity theft insurance option and other advanced services must upgrade their current plan. Other companies in the identity theft industry offer many of these advanced services without forcing customers to upgrade their plans.
