In order to best protect its customers' identities, EZShield's ID Restoration Pro service provides an online identity vault that allows consumers to encrypt their personal information, documents, and images.
The company also offers customers access to a secure password management tool as well as activity reports and breach/fraud news alerts. If any suspicious activity is detected, the company will issue a fraud alert to the customer.
EZShield offers a variety of upgrade options that include family monitoring, child monitoring, up to $1 million in identity theft insurance, dark web monitoring, credit monitoring, social media monitoring, keylogging security, credit report copies, and much more.
Although the company's ID Restoration Pro only offers a few protection and restoration services, customers can choose to upgrade to receive other services.
In addition to identity protection services, EZShield also offers a number of restoration services including 24/7 live customer support and access to a certified, U.S.-based resolution specialist.
The company also offers a 32-step End2End Defense restoration process which is meant to assist those with lost/stolen wallets, breached data, exposure to fraud, and/or identity theft. This process also is designed to help prevent future cases of fraud or identity theft.
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 appear to provide its customers with antivirus software with which they can use to protect their personal computers.
Customers who wish to obtain the $1 million identity theft insurance option and other advanced services like family monitoring, social media monitoring, etc., must upgrade their current plan.
Meanwhile, many other companies in the identity theft industry automatically offer most of these advanced services without forcing customers to upgrade their plans.
