Overall Score

IdentityIQ strives to better protect and empower the consumer through concise delivery of credit and identity data.

The company has provided consumers with identity- and credit-related protection solutions at affordable monthly rates, as well as identity theft education programs to corporate and academic associations since its founding in 2009.

The privately-held, Nevada-based company's goal is to help each user understand what can impact their credit and personal identity as well as give customers access to a variety of data sources and help them sense identity fraud as well as understand how that data can affect them.

IdentityIQ's comprehensive identity suite includes family protection, dark web monitoring, identity theft protection and restoration, credit reports and scores, and credit monitoring. Customers can choose from four different identity protection plan options that vary in monthly pricing and features.

The Good

  • Identity Protection
  • Affordable Monthly Plans
  • Comprehensive Identity and Credit Reporting Services
  • $1 Million Dollar Protection
  • Online Educational Resources

Identity Protection

IdentityIQ monitors for any use of a customer's Social Security Number (SSN) within its network and alerts them of what is seen. Other monitoring services will only alert customers if their SSN is used with a wrong address or name. In addition, IdentityIQ provides enhanced change of address notifications.

The company not only monitors for a change of address request with the credit reporting agencies but also monitors the National Change of Address registry to make sure customers are informed of changes made to their information.

Identity monitoring includes:

  • National and International Criminal Record Monitoring
  • SSN Trace
  • Enhanced Change of Address Monitoring
  • U.S.-Based Fraud Restoration Customer Service Team

Affordable Monthly Plans

IdentityIQ offers people four affordable monthly identity management solution plans which range from $6.99 to $29.99 per month.

The Secure Plan includes daily credit report monitoring for one credit bureau, dark web and internet monitoring, and up to $1 million in insurance.

Additionally, those who sign up for the Secure Plan receive social security number alerts, synthetic identity theft protection, file sharing network searches, lost wallet assistance, U.S.- based identity restoration services, checking account report, and Opt-out IQ.

The Secure Plus Plan includes everything from the Secure Plan along with IQ alerts with application monitoring and change of address.

The Secure Pro Plan includes everything from the Secure Plus Plan along with enhanced three-bureau credit report monitoring, alerts on crimes committed in your name, and credit score change alerts.

Lastly, the Secure Max Plan includes everything from the Secure Pro Plan along with credit score tracker, credit scores simulator, family protection, and fraud restoration with LPOA.

Comprehensive Identity and Credit Reporting Services

IdentityIQ works with each major credit bureau to help customers monitor their credit report and score activity.

Customers also receive daily fraud alerts and monthly credit score updates. Select IdentityIQ plans feature a credit score simulator, which provides consumers with information about how certain activities affect their credit ratings.

Unlike most of its competitors in the identity theft protection industry, IdentityIQ offers up to 12 credit reports per year.

$1 Million Dollar Protection

IdentityIQ will offer up to $1 million in identity theft insurance for users.

If customers have out-of-pocket costs due to theft, they're covered with up to $1 million in ID theft insurance for Lost Wages, Legal help, and Stolen Funds reimbursement.

If a customer becomes a victim of identity theft while using the company's services, IdentityIQ will make sure they receive personal identity restoration and insurance services.

Customers that enroll in IdentityIQ's Secure Max Plan are provided with up to $1 million in ID Theft insurance and up to $25,000 for their children. This $1 million and $25,000 family protection plan service can be a solid solution for those who fall victim to identity theft.

Online Educational Resources

Unlike some companies in the industry, IdentityIQ provides an impressive amount of identity theft information on its corporate website that all website visitors can easily access.

These online resources cover topics like data breaches, suspicious activity, identity theft motives, type of identity theft, identity management solutions, processes, personal security and risk, and more, and are designed to help consumers better guard themselves against identity theft and fraud.

The Bad

  • Partially Limited Services

Partially Limited Services

Although IdentityIQ does provide some great identity protection services, there are a few services that some other companies in the industry offer that IdentityIQ does not seem to provide like driver's license monitoring, data breach monitoring, and antivirus software/additional device protection. 

gavel

The Bottom Line

IdentityIQ strives to provide a comprehensive identity security suite.

The company offers consumers a number of attractive features to protect their identities from identity fraud and theft, including affordable monthly subscription plans, enhanced identity monitoring like Social Security Number monitoring and credit report monitoring, and up to $1 million in identity theft insurance.

Unlike many other companies, IdentityIQ offers family protection services that include up to $25,000 for family identity theft insurance. The company also provides comprehensive, U.S.-based identity restoration customer service to all users who are faced with a stolen identity situation while using the company's service.

Additionally, IdentityIQ also offers a variety of online educational resources that cover topics like data breaches, identity thief motives, and more.

One potential downside of IdentityIQ is that its services are somewhat limited in comparison to other top-rated identity protection companies, specifically when it comes to additional protective software and monitoring. 

Overall, if you are searching for a fairly comprehensive, affordable identity theft protection service, IdentityIQ may be worth looking into.  Potential customers are encouraged to read IdentityIQ reviews to see the company's service from a consumer point of view.

Not bad but it didn’t give me the results I was looking for in a credit monitoring company. They report on all 3 credit bureaus but don’t use FICO scores. This doesn’t benefit the consumer since these scores are what most of not all companies use for inquiries.

AWalk Philadelphia, PA

The good thing about this service is it provides credit reports for all 3 bureaus side by side to compare. This is great if you're trying to correct errors and improve your credit scores. The not so good part is the "credit scores" provided. They provide the Vantage Score 3.0. This scoring system is not used by banks or credit card companies so what's the point. It gives a false sense of progress and most people are shocked when they're denied because their true credit scores are significantly lower. The score is useless because you can't walk into the bank or car dealership with confidence because you don't even know how much lower the score will be. I can't speak on the identity protection because I haven't seen the company in action and from all the other reviews I've read, no one has so it's just an unproven claim. I also would like to mention that I get the same credit monitoring service for FREE from all of my major credit cards and charge cards as well as my bank. The same useless VantageScore 3.0 credit scores are included. So the actual service provided by IdentityIQ is REALLY OVERPRICED compared. I get alerts from the free services as well and the emails from them are always received long before I get the alert from IdentityIQ. Not to mention, IdentityIQ only updates once a month. A million changes could have happened in a month. The bottom line is that this service is ok if you're trying to correct errors on your credit reports but it's a waste of money to pay beyond a short period of time when you can get the same services for FREE. From what I've read, the problems start when you try to cancel. So I will be vigilant and prepared because I will be cancelling soon. I gave 2 stars for quality of service & value for money but this review system wouldn't post my true rating. I haven't used customer service yet but it wouldn't save my review without it.

I had an outside company sign me up with IdentityIQ and I immediately after the trial period cancelled them. I was just seeing if this company could help me with my Credit Card debt however after my own work in my free time I quashed all my debt on my own. However they kept charging my card regardless. I put a block on my Capital One account to the point I need a new card issued because IdentityIQ would not heed the block and kept attempting charges and yet they still send me emails attempting to update my banking info. Get the hint, I don’t need or want your service. If you wanna watch your credit and take care of your debts, don’t be lazy and just do it yourself.

I just canceled both my wife and I's subscription this month. We were both paying for the $30.00 plan ($60 total) and upon cancellation I was told I should refresh our profiles to get our latest score. Every time I logged on since APRIL it's been saying NO activity!! I just thought no news was good news. The gentlemen asked me if I was sure i wanted to cancel and I replied you cannot do it fast enough! I'm not sure where this so called "refresh" button is when I logged in via the mobile phone, but I cannot believe I wasted all the money for nothing in return!! I've used other credit monitoring sites in the past and never had this issue. STAY AWAY!!!!

If I could give zero stars I would. First the rep hangs up on me when asking when I still get the report I paid for be refund it. I was then told by another rep that I was told the following which wasn’t true. Long story short if you’re going to cancel they’re going to keep your money and you won’t get the report you paid for. They told me if I dispute the charges I would be committing fraud. They were closed on the day they charged my card. Really. Definitely following up a complaint with the NFCC see the BBB and the attorney generals office. The nerve of some people. After all they just work for the company they could care less about the quality control on a call.

Our company provides credit reports, credit monitoring services, and identity theft protection for consumers. We are not a credit repair company. We take negative feedback very seriously and strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience. In reviewing your call, it appears that you were trying to cancel your wife’s account in addition to your account. Due to security and privacy reasons, we can only cancel an account with direct permission from that account holder. We do apologize for any inconvenience that was caused.
