The Good

  • Monitoring Services 
  • Identity Theft Insurance

Monitoring Services

Fifth Third Bank offers comprehensive daily single credit bureau credit monitoring and social security number monitoring along with monthly credit reports from all three credit bureaus as a part of its basic identity protection services. The basic plan costs $9.95 per month.

Consumers also have an option of choosing the Fifth Third Identity Alert Premium package which costs $14.95 per month and includes daily credit monitoring from all three major credit bureaus-Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion, social security number monitoring, child social security number monitoring, and monthly credit reports from all three major credit reporting agencies. Regardless of which plan customers choose, the company will send fraud alert notifications if suspicious activity is present.

Identity Theft Insurance

In the event of identity theft or fraud, Fifth Third Bank identity alert account customers will be covered by up to $1 million in identity theft insurance. This policy covers and reimburses customers for expenses related to the theft including costs and lost wages as well as legal fees and expenses. 

The Bad

  • Limited Recovery Services
  • No Antivirus Software

Limited Recovery Services

Fifth Third Bank identity alert services offer little in the way of identity restoration. Although the company does provide lost wallet assistance, it does not help with financial, medical, criminal, or tax identity recovery.

No Antivirus Software

Fifth Third Bank does not appear to provide its customers with antivirus software as part of its identity protection service. Customers who wish to protect their computers from malicious viruses must get their own software. 

The Bottom Line

Fifth Third Bank offers a comprehensive identity protection service that includes a variety of fraud alert notifications, credit monitoring, social security number monitoring, monthly credit report copies from all three major credit reporting agencies, CreditXpert credit scores, credit card and debit card monitoring, and up to $1 million in identity theft insurance. However, the company's identity recovery services are limited and there is no antivirus software is provided to account members.

The majority of times when I have wanted to review my credit report, I receive a message that they are having problems with their system and try again later or call customer service if the problem continues. Then when you call customer service, the prompt system is worthless and it is almost impossible to talk to a real person or the service center is closed. Not a user friendly or reliable product.
