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 customers 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. Their comprehensive product bundles include family protection, dark web monitoring, identity theft protection & restoration, credit reports & scores, and credit monitoring.
IdentityIQ monitors for any use of a customer's 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 performs enhanced change of address notification. 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:
IdentityIQ offers people four affordable monthly protection plans which range from $6.99 to $29.99 per month. The Secure Plan costs $6.99 and includes daily credit report monitoring for one credit bureau, dark web and internet monitoring, up to $1 million in identity theft insurance, 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 costs $9.99 per month and includes everything from the Secure Plan along with IQ alerts with application monitoring and change of address. The Secure Pro Plan costs $19.99 per month and includes everything from the Secure Plus Plan along with enhanced three bureau credit reports monitoring, enhanced credit report monitoring, alerts on crimes committed in your name, and credit score change alerts. Lastly, the Secure Max Plan costs $29.99 and includes everything from the Secure Pro Plan along with credit score tracker, credit scores simulator, family protection, and fraud restoration with LPOA.
IdentityIQ works with all three credit bureaus to help customers monitor their credit activity. Customers also receive daily alerts and monthly credit scores. Select plans feature a credit score simulator, which provides consumers with information about how certain activities affect credit ratings. See changes as they happen with daily credit monitoring alerts:
IdentityIQ will offer up to $1 million in identity theft insurance for the primary member. If customers have out-of-pocket costs due to ID 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, 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.
IdentityIQ provides an impressive amount of information regarding identity theft on its website. These resources cover topics like data breaches, suspicious activity, identity theft motives, type of identity theft, how to notice identity theft, and more. IdentityIQ also offers several articles that provide further information to website users.
The company is noticeably younger than many other companies within the industry as it was founded in 2009. Due to its relatively short time in business, IdentityIQ may lack identity management experience and reputation in comparison to its older competitors.

Only way to cancel is call in. Most inconvenient. Do not recommend.
I love how they show you everything & always on top of your credit
Offered a credit report for 1.00. Took that, received no report now they start taking 21.99. Do not even listen to these scammers.
I called in last month to cancel this money on the 15th they still took 21.99 was told it would bw refunded but that was a lie i regret ever signing up they did nothing but get paid for nothing give me back my money
Rude! I will not be using there company! Bottom line all these thing's do, is take your money..... That's it I would steer clear of anything to do with credit repair, or these's kinds of companies. ☆ Don't try and put this on me, your reps are rude and I stand by my comment about this full of BS company! People please do your research on company's like this, they don't do nothing for you. Except take your money! That's it..... They don't help you with anything!

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.

Very informative and supportive as I get myself back on track with my credit.
If I could give 0 stars I would. Wanted to cancel and wouldn’t refund the payment that was just processed, even though the representative has told me he can see I’m not using their services. Then tried to offer me the same membership $15 cheaper than what I was paying.
A waste of money especially if 7ou dont use the site

IDENTITYIQ is Sooo Awesome 👍 Fast Response.Uptodate Information 24/7😁
I’ve only been with them just a short time and they let me if anything shows up and that nothing has change.
I just use it for a basic credit check. IdentityIQ alerts me when anything happens with my credit. I just wish the service was a little cheaper.
It’s pretty straight forward to use. If I didn’t have free credit report service from my bank, I would continue using it. Not bad at all.
