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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
