I have had the legal and identity theft coverage for almost 4 years. I use the attorneys all of the time for trival issues, like getting over-charged on a tow or getting a refund from my cell phone company. I also have used them to help walk through the eviction process of a bad renter. The identity theft is great. Right now I have the premium because I like having more monitoring. However, what matters to me the most is that if my identity is stolen, someone else deals with it.

Good site and information. To get an accurate, apples to apples comparison, look at LegalShield's premium plan. It's not the credit monitoring that concerns me, it's the monitoring of my health insurance card, ss number, name and address use - all on the web that has me using this service. Plus, I like that Kroll assigned a licensed investigator should my identity be compromised. It gets restored without question.

I am a LegalShield Member and the information in this article is not entirely accurate. The Identity Theft Plan offers much more then is shown here, possibly because it was improved after this was written. With that, the price of their premium plan, while higher than the cost shown in this article, is comparable to other IDT plans. The cost benefit of LegalShield's plan is still that it covers an entire family instead of each individual like most other companies. To see the features of the updated IDT plan go to www.legalshield.com/legalshield-plans/identity-theft

I had a $25 charge from a restaurant in Geneva, Switzerland on my business credit card. I immediately called LegalShield and they put me in touch with a licensed investigator from Kroll Advisory Services. He told me what to do to get a new card in a few days and he put a 90 day fraud alert on my other two credit cards. He said they deal with this on a daily basis and assured me he would check the monitoring and let me know if anything was happening. Two months later I was credited back the $25 and my identity across the board has been clean ever since. Fantastic!

I received a letter in the mail from the State of Texas mentioning my address and social security number, but someone else's name. I contacted LegalShield to consult with an investigator who ran a scan on my social security number for any changes in my personal information. He verified that no changes has been made to my information and concluded that it was a data entry error. He recommeded that I contact the department in Texas of the discrepancy the correct the issue. Although I could have called the department directly first, but I felt much better that I was able to verify that there was no activity because of the issue.

I lost my wallet and my money. I called the fraud investigators they immediately closed my credit cards, made sure my identity wasn’t stolen, and I was restored without have any fraudulent occurrences. They also notified all three credit bureaus without me calling anyone. My panic went from worrying to piece of mind instantly.

Great company, they have caught fraudulent activity numerous times and resolved it every time. It's so nice to have the ability to also speak with an attorney also since my family has the legal plan they offer to. This plan has not only protected us for over a decade, but made us a fortune using the service proactively.

I had a charge on my card that wasn't mine. I called the bank and they emailed me a form to complete and they would get back to me in 3 days. I called IDShield, spoke to an investigator, he called my bank and I got a new card in 2 Days...

I have had the IDShield/LegalShield service for nearly two years. I have had a few issues regarding my ID information and was able to talk to a Fraud Investigator that gave me excellent advice and reassurance. Very efficient, friendly and helpful no matter how small or big my question was. I am very pleased with their service.

I've been with legal shield for 10 years. I know I can pick up the phone and call about an issue, even if I'm not sure whether it's ID Theft or not. And they tell me what I can do or in some cases they take care if it on their end.

LegalShield has offered the most comprehensive Identity Theft Protection services for over 20 years. I received an email alert and was able to contact my Licensed Investigator at Kroll who helped me completely restore my identity and notify all three credit bureaus. My children are being monitored as well at no additional cost to my Family Plan.

Exceptional value for my money. Covers the entire family and has Kroll as the service provider. These are real professionals and investigators not a call center that distributes information. They have been doing ID Theft consulting and protection longer than anyone in the market. Won't ever be without it!

I was going to do a reverse mortgage on my home to secure the cash for my future medical expenses. I am 96 years old and paid off my home years ago. I spoke to my Legal Shield elder law attorney before I signed the reverse mortgage and was told that I qualified for a Medicaid Waiver which allowed me to keep my home and car and money in the bank and still get the care I need. I could not be more grateful for the elder law attorneys with whom I speak frequently to ask questions.

Covers all kids in the house up to age 26 now, so one payment covers the entire household. Combine that with comprehensive restoration by the 800 pound gorilla that is Kroll, and you have the most robust and least expensive ID Theft protection product on the market.

Aside from being addicted to utilizing attorneys after having used my plan 70 times, the Identity Theft Premium program is simply phenomenal! This is the only plan that allows you to enter all of your bank accounts, debit and credit cards, passport, phone numbers, emails, medical numbers, and driver's license to be monitored. This is the best!

I have used the services over 300 times.most of which the service was absolutely incredible.The few times that it didn't help were not for a lack of service but rather the situation was not as cut and dry as I thought it was. I love getting immediate notifications when something crops up and the peace of mind is powerful.

Used an attorney once in my life before having the service, and that was to pay a lot of money to do our Wills. Used the service about 23 times in the last 3 years, because we can! Saved several thousand dollars, and we wouldn't be without it. And we're about to do our Wills again, and it won't cost us any extra.

I have been a member of Legal Shield since 2005. I believe the more you use it the more you become adept at navigating and how to use it. I have made phone calls in the thousands of dollars had I retained an attorney through normal means. I also found out my daughter's social security number had been used for credit since she was 11 and she is still a minor. Kroll & LS have made sure her report is flagged in all credit bureaus and not available to access for more credit. So by the time she is 18 her file will be clear. I love LS. The more you use it the more you'll love it too!

I am a licensed investigator and this is the only service I recommend. LegalShield's service is backed by the oldest and largest investigative firm in the world with over 40 years of experience. This company provides comprehensive identity protection and full restoration. There are no gimmicks like million dollar guarantees and ridiculous claims about preventing identity theft. Unfortunately ID theft cannot be fully prevented, and that why a service like this with full restoration services is a must.

The peace of mind of having full restoration benefit through Kroll and not just credit monitoring is why I have this service. Kroll is the worlds leading risk management co. It's an extra sense of security for me. Also, my signficant other and daughter are covered under 1 plan without additional cost. What a value.

Great company that not only covers Financial Identity Theft but also covers Medical, Social Security, Drivers License and Character Identity Theft. But most important is their "Restoration" service through Kroll. No one actually assigns a private investigator from Kroll like they did for my case.

My Premium plan shows my name associated with three different addresses. Luckly they are actually places I've lived and worked. I'm amazed how fast the alerts come and how comprehensive the reporting is. I feel like it's a great deal of the price.

The Kroll ID Theft offered exclusively through LegalShield is much more than credit reports and a customer service center like most other id theft products. I'm empowered every time I call my licensed investigator, it's an awesome experience and valuable service I wouldn't be caught without!

They cleaned up a medical identity theft for me. I was told it can take a person 2 or more years to do it on their own and they had it completely cleaned up in several weeks. I don't think any of the other companies do the restoration for you with licensed investigators. Thank you Legal Shield.

Have been a customer of ID Shield for about 15 years now. Fortunately, I have not had to use their service, but there is peace of mind knowing that they are watching my credit and identity for me. They give us monthly reports on activity that is suspicious and if there is nothing, they also let us know that. $10 per month is a good deal for this peace of mind.

Potential customers need to be aware that the 5 million is a service guarantee and not an insurance policy for out of packet losses such as lost wages or fraudulent bank account transfers. This is an important distinction and is why I cancelled the service. Other than this ID Shield provides a good product at a reasonable price.

I've obtained an out-of-state mortgage where the lender got my credit score from all 3 credit bureaus. Nothing picked up by ID shield. Credit card company informed me that someone tried to use my card in 2 different foreign countries. Must have gotten my number from internet, but not picked up by ID Shield. When I reported these concerns they told me not to worry since their attorneys would take care of everything if my ID was stolen. They only monitor 1 out of 3 credit bureaus. Said these things may have been reported to other 2 and not reached Equifax yet. They couldn't explain how my lender got all 3 credit scores without having it show up on the 1 they monitor. Since they monitor only reports from 1 credit bureau, I figure they're only doing 1/3 of the job they should be doing. They also have my credit score listed much lower than what my mortgage broker told me they were. Their suggestion for all of this - monitor my own credit reports by getting annual reports from all 3 bureaus. ACCOUNT CANCELLED.
