Identity Lookout acknowledges that credit fraud can be a major threat to consumers, which is why the company puts such a focus on credit within its identity protection program.
Identity Lookout's services are lacking when it comes to recovery.
While the company does provide lost or stolen wallet assistance, it does not appear to offer financial, medical, criminal, or tax-related identity restoration services.
It is also unclear if Identity Lookout provides recovery assistance to customers who have pre-existing identity theft conditions.
Identity Lookout has not publicly disclosed specific details about its history, executive leadership, or benefit plans on its corporate website.
